Untold stories of the First World War

As part of our monthly Thursday late, Dr Claire Chatterton will be discussing the impact of World War One on home front psychiatric care.

July, 1917: a growing number of casualties resulted in increasing mental health institutions being taken over by the army. A total of 21 institutions were designated military hospitals, facilitating 27,158 beds. Meanwhile the death rate amongst the civilian inpatient psychiatric population had risen from under 10% to 17.4% during those years. This lecture, led by Dr Claire Chatterton, Chair of the History of Nursing Society, will investigate the effects that the Great War had on both patients and nursing staff, using contemporary accounts.
