  • Grant Summary:

    This exhibition will look at different methods of mental health diagnosis and treatment in Connecticut from the 1600s to the present day. It places the topic within the context of larger national trends to show how and why mental health care issues have been, and continue to be, at the center of political, economic, ethical, and social debates. CHS intends to show how this is not a linear story and will highlight the different methods of diagnosis and treatment that have been available at different points in time, against the backdrop of larger national trends and illustrated by smaller individual experiences.
