Up Top - From Lunatic Asylum to Community Care - Hugh Purcell, Margaret Percy

£9.99

Astudiaeth o driniaeth cleifion yn dioddef o salwch meddwl yn yr 20fed ganrif yng Nghymru. Agorodd Ysbyty Meddwl Canolbarth Cymru yn 1903, gan gau dros ganrif yn ddiweddarach pan gychwynwyd gwasanaeth gofal yn y gymuned. Dyma'r unig ysbyty yn y DU oedd yn trin cleifion seicotig a fu'n garcharorion rhyfel yn yr Ail Ryfel Byd; un o'r rhain, am gyfnod, fu'r Dirprwy Führer Rudolf Hess.

English Description: Up Top tells how the mentally ill were treated in the 20th century, focusing on the Mid Wales Mental Hospital, which began as a lunatic asylum and closed when community care took over 100 years later. It was the only UK hospital for psychotic POWs in World War II, including, briefly, the Deputy Führer Rudolf Hess.
