This behind the scenes tour will present objects, illustrations and early medical texts on the history of mental health which are not featured in the Moonstruck exhibition.

Medical researchers and historians will use the College’s collections to show you the stories behind the objects. From neuro-imaging to patient letters, our knowledgeable speakers will take you on a journey of diagnosis, treatment and the patient’s voice.

This tour is part of a series of events on the history of mental health which accompanies our free public exhibition 'Moonstruck: 500 years of mental health'.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Out of Sight, Out of Mind Tour are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
