Keys to our Past: Unlocking our History in Mental Health Care

Keys to our Past Header

Keys to our Past is a film series created by the Waypoint Centre for Mental Health Care in partnership with the Lakeshore Grounds Interpretive Centre, funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC). The collection brings to life topics in the history of mental health care in Canada ranging from the emergence of the asylum era to differing treatments to changes in Not Criminally Responsible (NCR) legislation. Each film is roughly 10mins in length, providing an historical introduction and connects the past to current practices.

Closed captioning is available for each video as are full transcripts.

Teaching Guides are currently in development. We would appreciate any and all comments, suggestions, and questions to enrich these documents.
