National Library of Medicine Traveling Exhibition - Care and Custody: Past Responses to Mental Health
The National Library of Medicine’s Care and Custody: Past Responses to Mental Health exhibition will be in the Jack E. Reese Galleria on the first floor of Hodges Library from October 23 to December 2.
The traveling exhibition provides a historical overview of how mental health policies have evolved from custodial forms of treatment such as commitments to asylums and mass incarcerations to more inclusive approaches aimed at protecting the rights of those with mental health conditions. The exhibition also highlights how physicians, advocates, families, and government agencies have contributed to shaping mental health policies.
