Feed Your Mind: Yankton State Hospital

The understanding of mental illness is very different today than it was 142 years ago when the Yankton State Hospital was open for patient care.  What will we know about it a 150 years from now?  What methods of treatment we use today will be considered inhumane to future generations?   Exhibit Coordinator of the Mead Cultural Education Centers 2020 exhibit Yankton State Hospital: Minds, Methods, and Medicine, Crystal Nelson, will discuss the last 150 years of mental illness in Dakota focusing on the changes in mental health diagnosis and treatments.

Tune in to the Mead Cultural Education Center Facebook page on March 5th at noon to hear this live presentation.
