    This is what I remember. My biological mother was institutionalized between 1977-1983 more on than off. My adoptive mom, her sister, would take me to visit her when I was 4-5 years old until I went to my adoptive dad and told him the stuff I was seeing. That stopped really fast. But what I remember was horrifying. She had ECT many times. We would visit her after a session and my biological mom wouldn't recognize me and it was just messed up.

    This was absolutely shocking and sick. Reminds me when I was 13 (I was abused by teachers, it left a mark, I was a little anti authority for good reason) this psychiatrist that I call Hannibal lector threw me in a loonie bin and told me if I don’t behave I’ll stay, he has full control of me. I’m a paranoid schizophrenic(yea he could diagnose schizophrenia at the ripe age of 13), nobody would believe me, only he could sign me out the hospital. That’s almost verbatim of what he told me, and mind you I was 13…. I’m almost 40 and I am terrified of doctors ever since.

    My great uncle went to one of these types of places, to Eloise Asylum in Detroit. It had its own zip code when it first opened and it had everything from a butcher shop to it’s own black smithing shop. He went for a “ mental break “ but he got out about a year later. There were also places in our country called ( poor houses ) and my grandmother was terrified of going to one. She talked about them a lot in her life and people were treated horribly in these places, it’s a part of our history that has been covered up and forgotten about. My great grandmother also had tuberculosis and my grandmother and her family hid her in an attic room so they could care for her until her death because they were carted off to these asylums when they found out you had TB to die. They were hell holes where a lot of people were experimented on. The medical community did some evil things to people, the lobotomy was absolutely evil and was done regularly in these asylums. Btw just subscribed.

      @@andrewyoung2796 Actually, it started out as a poorhouse & a farm 2 miles from the city limits and in very poor condition. It operated from 1839 to early 1982 (!!!) only eventually developing into an asylum, sanatorium and hospital. In 1832 it was called the Wayne County Poorhouse; it was in very poor condition when it was purchased 2 years later in 1834 as part of a 280 acres land sale, which included the poorhouse & the black horse inn, which was a pit stop between Detroit and Chicago. By 1872 it was still called 'the Wayne County Alms House'; by 1886 it was just 'the Wayne County House', and the name 'Eloise' doesn't really appear until the early 1900's: by 1913 there were three divisions with that namesake - The Eloise Hospital (the Mental Hospital), the Eloise Infirmary (the Poorhouse) and the Eloise Sanatorium (the T.B. Hospital) , collectively all just refferred to as 'the Eloise'. It isn't easy to find information, to be fair, but for only a small period of time did it ever hold any hope whatsoever - what you describe as "started out glorious" is certainly not how it actually began, and even if you refer only to the 1913 era, "glorious" still wouldn't be a description anybody would use by todays standards. Even back then I believe it was largely an illusion for the public, as conditions inside have always been brutal. During the time around the turn of the century when it was becoming largely self sufficient, with a working farm, its own police and fire departments, a railroad and trolley system, a bakery, amusement hall, laundry facility, post office and a power plant (this is the period of time I believe you refer to when you say it "started out glorious"...) even then many patients (inmates) refused to go to what they called "the wilderness", And the staff were exploiting the poor inmates since day one, I'm afraid, housing themselves in the old black horse tavern & housing patients/inmates in metal A-frames! Glorious indeed...

Fortunately, several of us ended up having lunch with him; he was a psychiatric genius, but had TOO MANY patients. He didn't promote lobotomies or excessive neuroleptics. I know nothing about the 'Superintendent' as well as the American psychiatrist. They appeared to be malignant, narcissistic maniacs! I retired from psychiatry 5 years ago.

      Yeah, there's a well-documented bias in these settings that leads to even mentally healthy people who seem sound of mind being labelled as lying or delusional, because the staff assume there must be something wrong with them.
      I can't remember the name, but an American psychologist ran an experiment in which he sent test subjects to a mental hospital to fake illness and then tell the staff they felt better. He didn't tell the hospital he'd done this, and the majority of subjects were institutionalized and kept that way even after reporting feeling better.
      When he later told the hospital about it and that he was going to send more fakers, but actually didn't, they still institutionalized the same rate of people. Point being, even professionals misdiagnose at an astounding rate. This isn't to call out people in the field, most of whom are honest and want the best for their patients, but it shows that they unfortunately do make mistakes that can have terrible consequences.

    I Remember visiting an Uncle In The Hospital. Back then it was called "Manic Depression" (Bi-Polar) And it was just cold and really eerie in there. It scared me so much, I may have been maybe 8 or 9. He then was stuck in a Unit until his death. He was that drugged up there was NO way he could be released and live a normal life, he lived there for decades until He passed not so long ago. Little did I know when I went to visit him that I would end up at the same hospital 9 years later. ThankFully alot changed since the 80's when I was put in there in the 90's. I also have Bi-Polar and yes I do still have to be admitted occasionally but I get to leave. I have another Uncle and Aunt plus 3 cousin's who also have Bi-Polar. I remember visiting him after my diagnosis and he was stunned that I was out and about. He still thought if you have Bi-Polar your locked away for life. My Aunt was forced to have Electric Shock Therapy many times. NO it did not help her. 🤘🏽🖤

      It's a travesty that electroshock therapy (among other things) has such a history of misuse that led to the popular misconceptions about it, because it does work in certain cases - not all, but some, and these things should never be used without patient consent except in legitimate emergencies.
      I also have mental disorders, and as many problems as there are in society today, I'm grateful that people like us are treated much better by both the medical profession and wider society than we were just a few decades ago.
      Anyway, sorry to hear about your uncle, but I'm glad to hear you've had a better time of things. Just going off your comment, you seem pretty stable. Take care.

      yes, it is still used occasionally, the only difference is someone can't be compelled to have it. They must voluntarily have it. Here, it is indicated for major depressive disorder symptoms only E.g. the depression is so bad that the person won't get out of bed or even eat. Many people report it works. A psychiatrist told me it basically does the same thing Sertraline does but much faster (how much truth is in that I don't know). One adverse effect from it though is memory loss but if your only memories are going to be laying in bed and not eating one may rationalize it is worth the memory loss@@WK-47

    Sadly, someone who is legitimately mentally unwell can sound and appear very sane a lot of the time. Something like schizophrenia can be hard to pick up when someone is lucid. Mental hospital abuse is disgusting, and shouldn't happen. Some people need to be housed in them for their safety and others unfortunately. Its sad that people who actually need help find it hard to get because so many psychiatric hospitals have been shut down over the years because of abuse and misuse of funds.

      what will it mean for people if it turns out one *can* hear voices from things non corporeal? i agree that there are people with problems but a lot of influences are not caused by the things we think of. even if we have *solutions* for these problems in a lot of cases the long term effects are still poorly studied. i agree a lot of meds are good but a lot of people could have an even better life with a significantly different interpretation and relation around that which one cant touch

    I used to work in one of these kind of institutions (or what to call them?) 40 yrs ago in Finland. What went on, up this modern era (beginning of the 80's ) inside those walls was disturbing to a point sometimes where it was truly difficult to separate sometimes (a lot of the time) who the sane were from the insane. The head Psychiatrist turned up maybe once a month for a day or two, and she was like directly out of some movie like The hunger games. ( Could have been easily written in to that script as Snow's wife or something) It was SUCH bizarre place to work, and it was my first real job, starting at 18 yrs old.
    The experience of that place has left its mark on me for life.

      I saw this movie in 1969 when I was in graduate school for social work and serving a 9 month internship at a very large ,very old state hospital. We students and staff were all shocked at what we saw. Our institution had modern therapy techniques and a history of changing and improving over time. Patients are usually treated with respect and listened to. Improvement had Patients released to the community. As students, the film seemed to represent how mental health institutions functioned in the past, decades ago. And to show us how the system could be abused and how mental health was scary to the public, so enough money was rarely provided for the life style and treatment that ill people needed.

They are worth watching if you can find them with subtitles.

    I highly recommend a book called The Psychopath Test, about the fact that if you're diagnosed as such, based on your answers to a series of arbitrary questions, it's near impossible to get out of some state mental hospitals, still. You don't have to commit a crime. It also gets into historical "treatments," like one where people were paired up and handcuffed together, naked, and fed LSD. A person interviewed for the book was cuffed to the Boston Strangler, oddly enough.😂 It's been a few years, but THAT might have been at Bridgewater.

Apart from being very articulate moreso that the so called experts who had the power to put him where he was. (Too smart and intelligent i would say was that poor mans crime who would have rubbed the 'professionals' up the wrong way even though he remained impeccably composed considering his position) any sane person would have hit the roof and would have had to have been put in a straight jacket!!! 9.56!!! That's the wonderful man apparently his niece is planning on writing a book about him but someone needs to make a film about that man! 😞😟 His niece 'Karen Adams?' Kindly commented that her uncle Vladimir eventually got out in 1973, lived in supportive housing in Brockton and worked part time until he died in 1996. I'm intrigued to know what could have been wrong with him to end up there. He shows amazing control of his anger, he was also very handsome so it'll be a great part for a young unknown actor (stop keep dragging in the same old bunch) it'll be an amazing film. (i bet Vladimir had some horrors to tell). As for that correctly named narcissistic 'everyone look at me' chief warden he looks similar to a now retired politician/former house of commons speaker in England called John Bercow. (For anyone remotely interested!!! 😂) probably made a sir or lord by now doesn't require much seeing Sir Jimmy Saville received a knighthood. Well, NOT requirements they'd want out in the open anyway 🙄🤔🤨. Poor Vladimir, his case haunts me.

    Absolutely love your videos! Keep up the great work.. that being said..I'm gonna have to somewhat play devil's advocate here. I've been a forensic psychiatric RN (criminally insane in the past, now called IST incompetent to stand trial until they're deemed NCR not criminally responsible) I've worked for numerous state institutions. The work we do is brutal. We have no tasers like the police. We have chemical and leather restraints. I'm not going to attempt to minimize anything shown here or say that evils haven't been committed by staff throughout history. But you all need to know that these people would absolutely ruin your daily routines if they were permitted to leave. They would cause a level of chaos which you can't begin to comprehend. Things have improved substantially since the days of this documentary, but we are still vastly under-staffed and need to keep a level of enforcement that, if we don't instill, the patients will overthrow us. I've encountered human-rights protestors outside of my job, and I'll say the same thing to you guys as I say to them. Go work there for one shift and then tell me how you feel. You all have no idea. The system is flawed for sure. The lack of IOP programs and re-introduction to society programs and support is abysmal. But don't demonize the staff at these places unless you have worked there yourself. We need a lot more staff and bigger institutions like we used to have. I get it, believe me, this looks terrible. But honestly... work in a state institution or volunteer for a day and then post.

    The ableism in this country is RAMPANT and it is the complete disregard of those with disabilities that allows these abuses to continue.
    25% of the population (and counting because people ignore how disabling the ongoing COVID pandemic is) are disabled. But the way you would see able bodied talk about it, we hardly exist at all.

At around 11 minutes when the body is being prepared for the funeral, a bit of ash falls onto the mans body, he's later cremated meaning his ashes and the cigarette ash are mixed together. It's widely believed Wiseman included this to show that the workers at the hospital put a similar value on the patients and there cigarettes, just disposable things that eventually turn into ash.
      Of course I forgot to mention any of that so it just looks like I mentioned them smoking for no reason but there was supposed to be a larger point haha.

    I went to bridgewater for a 30 day evaluation. My lawyer put this as part of my plea deal. Long story short a much older man tried doing things with my 13 year old niece so I hurt him and because it was violent my lawyer made that part of my plea just to make it sound better I guess. I am sure bridgewater was definitely a horrible place back then and it was nothing fantastic when I went 8 years ago but it was definitely a lot more structured and more stable than in this documentary. When I went to state prison after this to some regard it was no different than bridgewater because I believe there was many men there who desperately needed mental health treatment but at bridgewater I met some of the most respectful and caring people that you’d never think anything was wrong. Sometimes you’d get a hint something was wrong and sometimes they were fully lost in their insanity but there was many nice people and when you find out what some of them were there for it paints a very different picture. My reason for writing this is that although it was far from being an ideal place and I wish they did shut the lights off more to sleep, bridgewater seems to be doing a lot better than in this documentary.

And then my youngest sibling had his pants ripped off by a fellow patient when he went to one, with my mom not finding out right away due to them pulling him away from the phone when trying to tell her. Patients were often over medicated in every facility, behavioral centers for children often having patients coming in and out and staying up to a month at a time (in my brother's case, some were kept much longer due to being passed back and forth between hospitals). Adult facilities would only keep people for a couple of days, in contrast, but would still see a high return rate. There was also a divide in the adult facilities that I remember distinctly being absent from the children's ward: patients who were "crazy", and patients who claimed they weren't and who made fun of or otherwise simply avoided those they thought of as more "messed up". I also remember when I was a kid, certain staff members were pretty weird, one telling me he wanted an exorcism performed on me (goth kid-only guess as to why he brought that up, but still inappropriate). My brother's stay was the worst though, with clothing being taken from the kids a punishment as well as being forced to sleep in the common area on air mattresses if they so much as talked back.

    Thanks for showing this and telling the story, it should never be forgotten and is testament to how brutal people can be, even in times of peace. People always ask why people in Germany went along with the atrocities, but a scientist named Milgram illustrated how university students would administer painful electric shocks to others, simply because some 'authority' figure told them to. Around 60 percent carried out the instructions and shocked the other person, in some cases, to death. There was a small percentage of participants who didn't want to but were coerced and some of them needed therapy afterwards. However in the main part they did as they were instructed. Of course the people receiving the shocks were actors unbeknownst to the participants and they were instructed to plead and feign pain. None of this stopped the majority in keeping going with the "shocks". It really makes you wonder about how well you know the people around you.

      people in that experiment weren't actually shocked to death. the electric shocks were staged. they pretended to feel pain and pretended to die when the test subjects administered electric shocks. this was to evoke signs of guilt in the test subject. the subjects knew they were there for a test, so they went along with what they were told in order to complete the test, but then realised they had hurt and killed someone in a nearby room by administering those electric shocks to them. of course, like I said, that was staged. but the test subjects were not aware of this, so they thought they'd done something terrible. the entire point was to demonstrate how easily people follow authority and the consequences that may come of it.

      Sad fact seems to be though that the guard or people that are so to say supposed to CARE for some sort of well being about the people locked up in there are sadists, cruel narcissistic psychos themselves, given the authority within those walls to basically do whatever they deem necessary at any given time. I have myself witnessed an inmate/patient (they went by different names for some reason) being so drugged out of this world that they naturally would poop and pee all over themselves in a state of delirium..and then being punished for doing so when "waking up" again in the most cruel sadistic manners. Punished for something they had no awareness of having done, like sh****ng themselves when tranquilized out of this world, by the (to begin with) psycho "nurses"/guards" and a Sadistic lunatic of a head psychiatrist!
      I mean, it was my first job (working as a secretary /receptionist/ telephone operator) and opportunity to start building a curriculum (a State run facility) back 40 yrs ago, and there is no way of forgetting what i saw inside those walls.

    I just got through watching Titicut Follies and I found it most interesting. To clarify, the guy hosting, and singing at the talent show at the beginning and the end of the movie, as well as in the birthday scene was a guard named Eddie (with a flair for showmanship), and not the superintendent. I was curious about this and researched it. The superintendent was a man by the name of Charles W. Gaughan, who was the super from 1959 - 1985. He may or may not have been in the movie, but there are pics of him online...

    I worked psych in the Federal BoP and I must say that we treat inmates SO much better than this now, at least in the facilities where I worked. Now these are federal prisons and it took so many riots and atrocities throughout other prisons in history to get to this point. The options for prisoners requiring psych care are often more accessible than those in the general public at the present moment, from my experience despite many pushes for mental care acceptance in the US. We really don't have many inpatient options anymore that we could use, but the option were those awful state run mental institutions and let's not go there...

Smokers never considered anyone else and society permitted it as so many people smoked back then. No one watching this at the time in the 60's would have even thought this odd.
