Life in State Lunatic Asylum

Individuals suffering from mental illnesses face tough challenges, and the way mental health care is addressed has changed dramatically over the years.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and the Glore Psychiatric Museum in St. Joseph will host "Life in State Lunatic Asylum No. 2", a program about life in the early years of what became the St. Joseph State Hospital. Public Relations Officer of the Museum, Kathy Reno, says this event was created by staff member Amber Nold.
