Storyboard Text

  • Dorethea Dix awaits in the hallway of the Worcester hospital to observe the patients..
  • This place doesn't look sanitary at all!
  • Thankyou Dr.  Hart
  • Right this way Miss. Dix
  • As Dorethea enters the room she sees two patients staying in a filthy room together. 
  • Please help us, we have been stuck in this room all day!
  • As Dr. Hart showed her to the basement, she knew it was only going to get worse
  • This is where we keep the "possessed" people before they are able to come up and act normally.
  • I have to do something now's only getting to get worse and more people are going to be treated badly. 
  • Due to your valid evidence you have shown here today, we declare that the Worcester state mental hospital will be expanded and as well as our staff making sure ALL patients are treated well. 
  • Dorethea had presented her observations to the legislature of Massachusetts demanding reform. 
  • Yaay!!
  • I must not stop here there are many more innocent people that need my help!
  • Dorethea Dix knew she couldn't stop there so she went to help many others in areas such as  R.I and N.Y, eventually expanding her work beyond and leading a widespread movement of refomration.
