Reading archives, writing history brings me in touch with all sorts of stories, statistics and startling information that might interest readers who care about mental health and history.
Pivot Points: a fragmented history of Mental Health in Saskatchewan begins with the building of the Saskatchewan Hospital North Battleford in 1912 and ends with the Canadian Mental Health Association National conference in Regina in 2012 – 100 years in 150 pages.
However, not everything fit into one book. Other reading, before and after, reveals new (or should I say OLD) information in the archive record that interests me (and I hope will interest you.) The History Fragments category documents some of those tidbits.
