Proposal Summary: This multimedia documentary project began as a way to introduce students in nursing and other health professions to the history of mental health care in Iowa’s large state institutions.  That is still the main goal of the project and the reason for applying for funding from Academic Technologies.  However, as my colleagues and I have continued to collect data, we have broadened our vision of where this project can lead.  This will be the beginning of a series of projects that will educate many disciplines and the general public about an important segment of Iowa history.
