Collected stories as research for projections around the city in 2007

Meanwood Mental Hospital

Now it only shut down a few years back, i think the government closed it, but some of the people who came out of there were wrongfully in there to begin with.

One story that comes to mind is that of some women who were in there and the reason, the mental disability they had was to have an illegitimate child! now this was almost 60 years ago since they were admitted and now they were so institutionalised, they found it near most impossible to re-integrate back into society.

    The story about people being admitted to Meanwood hospital for petty matters andnever being released is true. I worked there 22 years ago, and met people who had actually gone mad through being kept in the hospital.

    It was a very sad place, in my opinion, but what was worse was when it closed and all the people there who couldn’t look after themselves were turfed out into society. I’m am convinced that thousands will have died throughout the country as a result of this cruel practice, Care in the Community.
