Breaking the chains of convention

Join us for a talk for mental health awareness week

Was Hanwell Asylum just a convenient place for inconvenient people? Or was it a site to care and cure for the mentally ill?

Assistant Curator Amy Dobson and local historian Paul Lang will talk about the revolution and evolution of Hanwell Asylum, the first pauper lunatic asylum for Middlesex, and its methods such as ‘Therapy of Employment’ and the abolishment of mechanical restraints.
