This project explores the history of mental health facilities and jails in the US over the past century. Mothers that dropped their children off because they were "hard to manage" placed in facilities with children who were truly in need of treatment due to living with advanced mental illness. Faclilities that were horribly overcrowded which grew into the places of nightmares. Then we have the penal system. Grown men and women that are incarcerated due to systemic failures, watching opportunities and dreams slip away. Thankfully we have evolved in some areas, but we have so much farther to go.
