Curio Collective

A cabinet of oddities, deadly things, items you may believe to be haunted and make you generally uneasy. 

December 2022 - Asylum

The lunatic asylum (alternatively mental asylum or insane asylum) was an early precursor of the modern psychiatric hospital. 
The fall of the lunatic asylum and its eventual replacement by modern psychiatric hospitals explains the rise of organized, institutional psychiatry. While there were earlier institutions that housed the "insane", the conclusion that institutionalization was the correct solution to treating people considered to be "mad" was part of a social process in the 19th century that began to seek solutions outside for families and local communities.
