In recognition of the 200th anniversary of the Institute of Living (IOL) this year, Hartford HealthCare has partnered with the Connecticut Historical Society to present Common Struggle, Individual Experience: An Exhibition About Mental Health.
This special podcast series will take us through the history of mental health treatment in Connecticut, and behind the scenes of the IOL, the first psychiatric hospital in the history of Connecticut and the third in the nation.
The IOL played a significant role in fundamentally changing approaches to mental health – blazing a trail of moral, ethical treatment for others to follow.
In episode one, Hartford HealthCare’s Steve Coates talks to the Connecticut Historical Society’s Director of Exhibitions Ben Gammell, and Research Historian Karen Li Miller about the exhibit which is now open at the Connecticut Historical Society.
Be sure to follow Hartford HealthCare on your favorite podcast platform where more episodes focusing on the IOL’s history, present and future will publish throughout the year.
