Hosted by a self-identified mental patient, this “March of Medicine” television broadcast begins with a play about 19th century mental health reformer Dorothea Dix, staged by patients from St. Elizabeths Hospital in Washington, D.C. The program then visits the New Jersey State Hospital in Trenton, which Dix founded, to observe crowded conditions in a plea for public sympathy and funding. The program also looks at advances in treatment using new medications, and includes an appeal for more hospital space by the New Jersey governor. close
