Description:
It may come as a surprise to realise that the world-wide mental health movement, of which the Mental Health Association of Ireland is a part, had its origin in the first decade of this century. In 1907 Clifford Beers, who had been a patient in a mental hospital from 1900 to 1903 published a book called A Mind that Found Itself. The interest aroused by Beer's story led to the foundation of the mental hygiene movement in America, the aims of which were ' to secure the best possible treatment.for the mentally ill, to study mental disorders in all their forms, and to disseminate knowledge about their causes, treatment and prevention.
