Elements of Mental Hygiene

Mary J Walsh, Fordham University


The modern mental hygiene movement began as a humanitarian program designed to make life more tolerable for those who had succumbed to mental disorders. This took the form of providing better housing for these unfortunates, more kindly means of treatment, and the development of a 1 more tolerant viewpoint on the part of the public in general.
