Books 2014 Ten Days in a Mad-House by Nellie Bly
After the report was done she loaned me this book. What a terrible time it was to be trapped in the mental health system. Nellie was lucky to be rescued for many being commited to an asylum was a death sentence or led to a lifetime of abuse, neglect and horrible living conditions. I do wonder even with t,he money she was able to get for Blackwell's Island by bringing this all to the attention of a grand jury to be investigated, if conditions improved much and for how long.
