Care in the Community has failed - Health Secretary, Frank Dobson repeated this statement several times. It is the misfortune of politicians that their most outrageous statements are remembered for ever.

This one must rank alongside Margaret Thatcher's "There is no such thing as society". The statement is prominent in Modernising Mental Health Services. Safe, sound and supportive. As this also says that community care had brought "many beneficial changes", and as it shows no intention of abandoning community care, I would interpret it to mean that care in the community has failed for some , and in some respects and so the government was bringing in a new model of community care which would address the problems.

Bethlehem Hospital, or "Bedlam," later became notorious for its neglectful care of people with mental illness. The priory was first used to house "distracted persons" in around the year The Catholic Encyclopedia says it was a hospital place of refuge from the begining 'originally intended for the poor suffering from any ailment and for such as might have no other lodging, hence its name, Bethlehem, in Hebrew, the "house of bread.

See also inquistion - Bright - Noteworth events reaches America in Argued that before Bethlem was a religious institution focusing primarily on collecting and distributing alms. By the fourteenth century "the main beneficiaries, apart from the Hospital and its staff, were probably poor people who lived locally, rather than the Order of Bethlehem. As the social and political changes of the mid-fourteenth century onwards made alms-collecting more difficult, the Hospital started to concentrate ever more on the care of the sick, and in particular on the care of the mad.

Typically, this happened at just the moment when other English hospitals were abandoning or cutting back this type of provision severely. Bethlem before: Warren R.

Margery Kempe , who was born in Lynn, Norfolk, about and lived to , dictated a book of her spiritual experiences which shows how she went "out of her mind" after childbirth, was bound in a storeroom to prevent her from self-harm, suspected of demonic possession, but escaped burning, had visions of angels and visions of men's sexual parts and was seen as both holy and heretic.

Through hearing holy sermons and books, she "ever increased in contemplation and holy meditation, but learnt through divine visits to her during and after "cursed thoughts" and "pain" that "every good thought is the speech of God". See Peterson, D. Valencia, opened at the beginning of the century, is said to have removed chains and used games, occupation, entertainment, diet and hygiene as early as Warren R. However, one very necessary one is lacking, that is, a hospital or house where the innocent and frenzied would be drawn together because many poor, innocent and frenzied people wander through this city.

They suffer great hardships of hunger and cold and harm, because due to their innocence and rage, they do not know how to earn their living nor ask for the maintenance they need for their living. Therefore, they sleep in the streets and die from hunger and cold and many evil persons, who do not have God in their conscience hurt them and point to where they are sleeping, they injury and kill and abuse some innocent women.

It also occurs that the frenzied poor hurt many of the persons who are out wandering through the city. These things are known in the entire city of Valencia. Thus, it would be a very holy thing and work for Valencia to build a hostel or hospital where such insane or innocent persons could be housed so that they would not be wandering through the city and could not hurt nor be hurt.

Madhouses for two or more inmates were more vulnerable to the risk of exposure, because more people were involved, and because the registration of inmates was required from , but they might provide more humane custody at a lower price. Physicians and others who arranged single confinement, would also refer people to private madhouses, in which they would have some financial stake. Some of these catered especially for the rich. Irish's in Guildford , already advertised good conditions in We can trace a continuous line from Irish to Stilwell's in Hayes in the midth century.

In his best known hymn, he pleads for "a closer walk with God, a calm and heavenly frame".

But he has lost it: "What peaceful hours I once enjoyed! How sweet their memory still! But they have left an aching void, The world can never fill". Cowper's life and poetry were influential in suggesting associations between mental distress and creativity. For me his most beautiful poem is one he wrote in the autumn of To Mary Mrs Unwin who cared for him for many years and who, being herself reduced to dependency, Cowper cared for in turn. See Ashley's assessment and Rossetti's s assessment The mad were to be examined and either set at liberty or "cared for in hospitals indicated for that purpose".

After an initial period of confusion, the two institutions became reserved for the insane. He decided to unchain the lunatics.

The state entered the field in a big way. By the end of the century there were 74, patients in public asylums. The early period of state asylums was custodial , out of it developed a period of therapeutic optimism that reached its height in the s , and declined into therapeutic pessimism in the second half of the nineteenth century. Hadfield was detained as a criminal lunatic. The consequent long term detention of lunatics in county gaols triggered the County Asylums Act.

St Thomas's Hospital, Exeter, Devon opened. This was the last of the series of asylums constructed in the eighteenth century by voluntary subscription , as the County Asylums Act provided the opportunity to combine money raised by rates with subscriptions.

Therapeutic Optimism: The optimistic period in the history of asylums runs from about to around It was at its height in the s. Asylums built under the and County Asylums Act tended to be left to the management of doctors. As the theories and techniques of managing lunatics in asylums developed, so did the belief that this asylum treatment itself was the correct, scientific way to cure lunacy. Signs of the therapeutic change can be seen in the changing legislation.

The Madhouses Act, unlike the Act, was concerned about conditions in asylums. These included the moral conditions. Official visitors were required to inquire about the performance of divine service and its effects. In , this inquiry was extended to include "what description of employment, amusement or recreation if any is provided".

The only Metropolitan legal commissioner not appointed as a Lunacy Commissioner was named in the Act as Secretary. Its principle functions were to monitor the erection of a network of publicly owned county asylums , required under the County Asylums Act , and the transfer of all pauper lunatics from workhouses and outdoor relief to a public or private asylum; to regulate their treatment in private asylums, and with the Poor Law Commission monitor the treatment of any remaining in workhouses or on outdoor relief.

The Lunacy Commission was also to monitor the regulation of county asylums and county licensed houses by JPs, and to regulate the conduct of hospitals for the insane. With the JPs it monitored the admission and discharge of patients from all types of asylum. It collected, collated and analysed data on the treatment of lunacy and advised on the development of lunacy law and policy. It also continued to license London's madhouses.

The Architect of the building, under consideration informed himself of these circumstances, and has been, we believe the first to design an Asylum which shall facilitate and be adapted to the recent treatment of the insane by means of kindness, companionship, and watchfulness, rather than coercion, punishment, and confinement.

Medical theory was strongly influenced by social darwinist beliefs that insanity is the end product of an incurable degenerative disease carried in the victim's inherited biology, and the experience of asylums, and reanalysis of their statistics, undermined the earlier beliefs in their therapeutic value.

In the late 19th and 20th centuries, the pessimistic period in asylum history ran gently into a backwater period. Most progress in mental health policy took place outside the asylums, in specialist hospitals like the Maudsley , or in outpatient departments, and the asylums became the quiet back wards where chronic patients live.

Edgar Sheppard born Worcester about was medical superintendent of the male department of Colney Hatch from to In this enormous asylum he became well known for innovations, including daily Turkish Baths as therapy on a large scale, an asylum band, theatre, concerts, readings, lectures and a revival of restraint His method of locking dirty and destructive patients in side rooms " in a nude state " for weeks at a time where they " slept on the floor without either bed or pillow, being supplied only with strong quilted rugs ", packing violent patients in wet sheets, or retraining them by belts, wrist straps and locked gloves, was condemned " in the strongest manner " by the commissioners in lunacy..

I shuddered, and yet her face wore no look of loathing nor pity. The expression was a divine one of habitual love.
