Wednesday, November 8, 2017 - All Day

The new exhibit, The Life of the Mind, opening Saturday, October 21, tells the story of mental health treatment from the late 18th century through to today. The Life of the Mind explores the evolution of mental health care based on an increase in knowledge of how the brain and mind works and on society’s changing perspectives of mental illnesses. Many artifacts featured in The Life of the Mind were generously donated to the GRPM by Pine Rest Christian Mental Health Hospital where they had been originally used. This exhibit will run through January 7, 2018.
