Two years ago I was sent to a mental institution for trying to commit suicide and stayed longer because I was diagnosed with multiple personality syndrome and they thought I was bi-polar.
I'm still having problems fitting in at school or youth group or little theater. I've been called crazy in the hallways and other things. My friend tries to introduce me to guys but they are very afraid of me I guess. She thinks I'd really benefit from a boyfriend, I'd like one too.
But would spending time in the mental hospital a reason to never date the girl?

No, that's not something that would drive me away. I'd be sympathetic. I would also be proud of her for seeking help for her problems. There's no shame in it. I applaud someone for doing it. So for me, no, spending time in a mental hospital is not a reason to never date a girl. At least you're getting help. I dated girls with other problems like yours, and they didn't do anything about it. I've seen what happens to people who don't get help. It's not pretty.
About the people in your school. Forget about them if you can. Try to ignore them. They're high schoolers. They're immature. They're insensitive. They're clearly morons. Highschool is hell, and it's hell for just about everybody (and if anyone here says otherwise, screw you, there's a large chance you are or were part of the problem) but the thing is, high school gets better, and if it doesn't, then look on the bright side. It end. You get out. You can start a new life when it's over, and none of that crap has to follow you.
About the guys who are afraid of you. Just try to prove them wrong. If your friend is setting you up, maybe she can talk to them. Maybe she can help. But the guys you're approaching on your own, just try your best, be yourself, be good to them, and if they can't get over your problems, then they weren't for you, after all. I know that sucks, but there will always be more guys, and you can always keep trying. Eventually, you might find the right guy.
I know this all sounds cliché. I know this sounds like I'm feeding it to you, but I am speaking from experience, both first and second hand. Things CAN get better. You just have to keep trying. In the meantime, hopefully this answer of mine helped.
