By Jayne Melville Whyte
Canadian Mental Health Association (Saskatchewan Division) Inc., Regina (2012)
One hundred years of history in 150 pages from the building of the mental hospital in North Battleford in 1912 to the Canadian Mental Health Association conference of 2012, with special sections on the role of CMHA, the emptying of mental hospitals into community, the ups and downs of child and youth services, and the changing trends in government, medical and community mental health philosophies.
The focus is on history, and does not tell Jayne’s personal story, but the narrative draws on her more than 40 years experience as a person who was a patient/client/survivor in the system.
Available from Jayne $20 plus $5 postage and handling.
