Product Features
  • This collection of photographs, history, and firsthand accounts gives readers a glimpse at the roots of mental health.
  • These vignettes are born of the personal stories of those who worked at these facilities, those who were institutionalized, and their families.
  • The authors took the time to listen to their stories and endeavored to understand their past and recognize how these events continue to influence the mental health industry today.
  • Pictured throughout are the physical relics of the places--the now largely abandoned asylums of Connecticut--where these stories unfurled.

About the Author

L.F. Blanchard has spent more than two decades serving as a counselor within her community. She holds a master's degree in art therapy and mental health counseling and works with at-risk children and their families. Tammy Rebello holds a bachelor's degree in communications. Her passion for urban photography and experience with mental illness have ignited her desire to raise awareness of those that live or have lived with mental disease. The goal of both authors is to diminish the stigma associated with such illnesses and educate the public through the stories of themselves and others.
