Storyboard Text

  • What did I do to deserve this?
  • Public asylums were in terrible condition and mistreated the insane.
  • The mentally insane were seen as monsters and like they were possessed.
  • You're one of us!
  • This is inhumane! These people need help not abuse!
  • Dorothea Dix traveled around and documented the bad conditions and mistreatment of the mentally ill.
  • Please help me!
  • You need to stop treating the insane so horribly.
  • Ms. Dix told the government about her findings and demanded change soon after.
  • The gov't
  • Thank you, Dorothea Dix! You really do care.
  • The conditions were slightly improved and those who were mentally ill were treated with a bit more respect.
  • There were still much progress to be made for asylums and for those living in them, but thanks to Ms. Dix and reforms things started to get better!
