For #WellTogether Week, University Archivist Caroline Brown has created some short talks which explore how archives relate to mental well-being. Today we share the first of her short talks, in which she discusses collections that relate to mental health in the University Archives; the University Archives hold the archives of NHS Tayside, including information about boards of management of health care, hospitals, and what were called ‘asylums’ in Dundee, Perth and Angus. Watch Caroline explore these archives and the surprising history behind mental health care in Scotland below!
