About this event

Join experienced curators from Bethlem Museum of the Mind as we look at at the world of the Victorian Asylum, and make sense of what happened within the walls of these institutions. Looking specifically at the case record of a person admitted to Bethlem Royal Hospital we will investigate the events that led to their admission, their time in the Hospital and talk a bit about the aftermath and effect of admission on patient's lives. This is an interactive session with group discussion of difficult issues around mental health that will also feature looking at anachronistic language and attitudes.

Organiser Bethlem Museum of the Mind

Organiser of Presumed Curable

Bethlem Royal Hospital was founded in 1247 and was the first institution in the UK to specialise in the care of the mentally ill. The hospital continues to provide in-patient care as part of the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust, and has been based in south London since 1930.

Situated within the hospital grounds, Bethlem Museum of the Mind was formally opened by artist Grayson Perry in March 2015. The museum cares for an internationally renowned collection of archives, art and historic objects, which together offer an unparalleled resource to support the history of mental healthcare and treatment.
