Thank you for keeping us informed about the latest research and programs focused on people with mental illness. I'm not sure if you've covered it before but I love the website/blog called Morningside Hospital as it offers great insights into how people with mental illness were treated in the first half of the 20th century. It chronicles the lives of many lost Alaskans and other people with mental illness in the Northwest.
