Erika Dyck & Alex Deighton--Book Launch (Reading and Signing)

Monday Oct 23 2017 7:00 pm, Saskatoon, Travel Alcove

The Saskatchewan Mental Hospital at Weyburn has played a significant role in the history of psychiatric services, mental health research, and community care in Canada. Its history provides a window to the changing nature of mental health services over the twentieth century. Managing Madness examines the Weyburn mental hospital, the people it housed, struggled to understand, help, or even tried to change, and the ever-shifting understanding of mental health.

Erika Dyck is a historian of health, medicine, and Canadian society at the University of Saskatchewan and Canada Research Chair in the History of Medicine.

Alex Deighton is a graduate student in the Department of History at the University of Saskatchewan.
