This week we're joined by Kyna, host of @HistoricalAfPod to learn about a revolution in mental healthcare - the Kirkbride Plan! These standardized mental healthcare facilities began development in the 19th century and some still stand today. Kyna gives us insight into the history of her home state's local Kirkbride Asylum and the role it played in the story of mental healthcare in the USA.
