Third Entry

The media piece I decided to include this week comes from one of my favorite shows of all time, Ghost Adventures. In the short clip they discuss the reasons that people were admitted to the hospital; mostly they focus on people that were committed for “no reason.” They focus on how living in Kirkbrides asylum negatively affected the mental health of all people but specifically the ones who should not have been there. What stands out the most is when they describe the various methods of restraint. While we have talked about it in class, being able to see the rooms and the restraining “set ups” truly brings to light what kind of life these people had.
