Bedlam

September 18 – 7:30 PM VANCOUVER PREMIERE! The practice of committing mentally ill individuals to long-term institutions reached its apex in the 1950s, when over half a million people inthe United States resided within asylums. With the de-institutionalization movement of the 1960s, these places all but disappeared, but the resources meant for community-based care never materialized. Post-screening discussion with Dr. Kenneth Paul Rosenberg.
