History of Mental Health in the U.S.

Week 2 Blog Post

I collect postcards and found this interesting one from the early 1900s showing the Westbrook Sanatorium in Richmond, Virginia. On the back it talks a little bit about how they’re a private run hospital to treat nervous and mental disorders as well as addiction conditions. This postcard got me thinking about topics/facilities close to home that I could possibly cover in our upcoming projects.
