Old psych wards

Before the mid-eighteen hundreds, common belief was that those who suffered from mental illness suffered because they had a “disease of the soul”. Their madness supposedly stemmed from an evil within, and they thus were treated as animals. Patients in these early asylums were kept in cages, given small amounts of often unclean food, had little or no clothing, wore no shoes, and slept in dirt. the caretakers became confident that these human beings were in actuality closer to animals.
