A Better Story

A Quaker, Dr. Thomas Story Kirkbridge took over the Pennsylvania Hospital for the Insane and he popularized what became later known as “Moral Treatment”. He had compassion and respect for the insane. He believed rich or poor patients needed a human and dignified environment. He believed patients could be cured. He did not think they were doomed to their current existence. He even married one of his cured patients. This is definitely a bright spot.❤️, Jamry
