Changing Direction: Adopting Trauma-Informed Care in Indiana State Hospitals

November 7 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Virtual Event Virtual Event

Look at the historic therapeutic care used in the state’s psychiatric hospitals and compare this care to the newly integrated trauma-informed care model to see how much has changed.

The Indiana Medical History Museum (IMHM) has been a careful guardian of the history of psychiatric care at Central State Hospital (1848—1994) since its founding in 1969. This event is a chance to expand that historical knowledge to include similar hospitals around the state and highlight present-day innovations.

Following two short presentations – one by a medical historian and the other by a hospital director – attendees will get to listen in on a discussion with a patient advocate on the significance of these changes. Attendees are encouraged to visit the IMHM website to learn about tour opportunities to see the related exhibit Changing Direction: The Evolution of Treatment at Indiana’s State Psychiatric Hospitals.

A partnership between Indiana Medical History Museum, Indiana State Psychiatric Hospital Network, and Mental Health America of Indiana.
