With no knowledge about the nature of mental illness or its treatment, mentally ill children and adults were often confined to prisons or even forced to live on the outskirts of settlements or even in the surrounding wilderness. The shift in attitudes about mental healthfrom being viewed as a dangerous social evil to being recognized as a public health issueoccurred gradually and was driven by the advent and spread of scientific knowledge. This volume of Opinions Throughout History looks at how attitudes about mental health have changed from the colonial era to the twenty-first century, and how developments in medicine, psychiatric care, and social services have changed the fate of those living with behavioral health challenges. The history and evolution of mental health care and philosophy are discussed, as well as peripheral issues like drug and alcohol abuse, child and family welfare, and the ongoing debate over government subsidies for health care and social outreach programs.June 2023|550 Pages|Hardcover|ISBN: 978-1-63700-540-8|$195 Includes Free Online Access on the Salem Press/Grey House Platform Opinions Throughout History: Church & StateThe United States of America was founded by Christians who brought their European religion to the New World and used their spiritual doctrines as a guide when crafting the founding nations laws and traditions.
