The Psychiatric Survivor Archives of Toronto “aims to collect and preserve the stories and histories of people with lived mental health experience, and to value and dignify some of society’s most marginalized, oppressed and misunderstood people.”
It’s too bad that so much of our history has been destroyed or hidden away. The state “hospital” where I work once had its own grave yard. Most of these institutions had their own grave yards. What does that tell you????? In many of these places the markers don’t even have names on them and in many there aren’t even any markers at all. People jus disappeared.
