oh wow.. this is SO great.. thanks for posting about this.. Stuff like this fascinates me for some reason.. so sad the way people were treated back then..

I'm so glad you found the "state hospital" exhibit. It's shocking and horrible and fascinating all at once...

I wanted to let you know that my post might have been confusing. My Great Aunt was institutionalized in Texas, not New York, so she's not really related to the online exhibit in any literal way -- I just thought the things were thematically related.

Sorry for any confusion, and thanks your your interest.

I found this sad. Thankfully mental hospitals have improved a lot since those old days. But it shows we all don't know what is ahead of us in the future and if we were to suffer a tragedy it could set us on the road to hospitalisation or homelessness. I'm always hoping for good luck for myself and family.
