Getting Into and Out of the Asylum and Mental Hospital: Admissions, Discharges and the Impact of Treatments on the Mentally Ill, c.1850-2000

Supported by the Wellcome Trust, at the Centre for Medical History, University of Exeter

This two-day workshop, which has come out of a two-year project on mental health and returning patient care, aims to explore the experiences of in-patient treatment, including the journeys into and out of the mental institution, in a broad geographical range. It seeks to contribute to a better understanding of the significant changes in the care for the mentally unwell the past century has witnessed.

The workshop will bring together a wide audience, including scholars at different stages of their careers from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds, clinicians, and guardians of medical records. Thus, we hope to open up a dialogue between the research community, medical practitioners, and the archives.
