Not always an easy topic to read about, but it gives a good history in our changing thoughts on mental illness. Those housed at the upstate NY facility were often used as labor with no compensation. Some were more ill than others but some never had the circumstances of their prior considered in how that impacted there help. Some could have been helped if their root issues were discussed. Anyway, as a genealogy buff it was interesting.
