Inside The Mental: Silence, Stigma, Psychiatry, and LSD

Kay Parley

University of Regina Press

After suffering a breakdown in 1948, Kay Parley was placed in Saskatchewan’s Weyburn Mental Hospital, known colloquially as “the Mental.” Nine months later, her illness never properly diagnosed but under control, she was released. While at the hospital, Parley reconnected with her father, a resident mental patient she had not seen in 18 years. She also met (for the first time) her maternal grandfather, another patient who had been living at the hospital for decades.
