The Maudsley at War
Following a highly successful run at the Maudsley Long Gallery, 'The Maudsley at War' will be on display at the Royal College of Psychiatrists in London from May-November 2016.
The Maudsley Hospital was envisaged in 1907 as an urban centre for the treatment, teaching and research of psychiatric disorders. Just before its official opening in 1916, the hospital was requisitioned by the Army and during the Great War it treated thousands of soldiers affected by shell shock and other war neuroses. Under the influence of Frederick Mott, the Maudsley offered patients a pioneering 'atmosphere of cure' that would challenge existing psychiatric approaches.
