According to the home page, this site is "a permanent, public Canadian website, created to enhance critical thinking, heritage preservation and historical research in the fields of psychiatric medicine and mental health.
The site is run by a collective which includes Canadian, American and British scholars from across the social sciences. We welcome national and international involvement from educators, researchers, mental health providers and psychiatric survivors. While we are currently operating in English, we are committed to building a fully bilingual site."
Site features include a section with digitized selections of archival records, a library of digitized and electronic (digital) publications, information from the Open Doors Project research project (2007-2012) and educational resources.
