History Fragments

puzzle with arrows in different directions

Books, articles and archives reveal bits of information that illustrate the development of the mental health system we have now, the things we’ve lost and gained.  My particular interest is the development of the consumer/survivor movements – the ways that people who live with mental illness – have lost and found their voices and places in society. 

This category will collect those fragments of history that are of interest, and may be useful to historians and social activists.
