AUTHOR

Muckenhoupt, Margaret

SUMMARY

By exposing the sickening conditions people with mental illness endured in jails, almshouses, and basement cells, Dorothea Dix (1802-1887) single-handedly transformed the U.S. system of mental health care in the 19th century. Dix traveled from state to state, describing the hideous suffering people who were both poor and mentally ill endured at the hands of their captors. Her tireless research and personal lobbying of legislators led to construction of asylums for the mentally ill in state after state.Muckenhoupt, Margaret is the author of 'Dorothea Dix Champion for the Mentally Ill' with ISBN 9780195129212 and ISBN 0195129210.
