20p, 8"x5.25", color, stapled
Many spooky Halloween stories include tales of old insane asylums; the stereotypical story usually follows a particularly disturbed patient that becomes violent or possessed, wreaking chaos on the doctors and the public. However, in reality, patients were almost always the victims of the cruel things that occurred in old psychiatric hospitals. The purpose of this zine is to share spooky stories about old mental institutions in the spirit of Halloween, but also to being light to the wrongdoings of past psychiatric doctors, and educate people on how mental healthcare has improved in the last century!
