about_author

Clifford Whittingham Beers, 1876-1943, is seen as the founder of the American mental hygiene movement. After the publication of this book, in 1908, which he wrote as an autobiographical account of his confinement in a mental institution of the time, he gained the support of the medical profession to work towards the prevention of mental disorders. This book is an insight into what it was like to be institutionalised at that less enlightened period of time.
