In order to portray the existing stigma which is currently attached to mental homes, I made this moodboard. Bearing in mind the context of time, we as a group were under the impression that the environment in mental homes seemed slightly horrific. We thought that patients weren’t treated correctly and doctors used obscure/painful ways of experimenting with treatments. Another source for the existing connotations we have of mental institutions stem a lot from the media we see i.e. movies. Movies such as Shutter Island play a big part in the way we perceive this topic because we go from a state of not really knowing much about mental health, to a state where we’re only fed biased points of view by this media. Making a real visit to this site may either support or go against this negative outlook.
