Behind the Bricks: Recovering the Stories of the Lakeshore Psychiatric Hospital (Jan. 31, 2017 – May 31, 2017)

After 89 years in operation, the Lakeshore Psychiatric Hospital closed in 1979. The property was largely abandoned and eventually fell into a state of disrepair. Most archival records and potential artefacts were lost during this time. Behind the Bricks explores this loss and examines how we can recover the stories of the Lakeshore Psychiatric Hospital. It is also an invitation to join Humber College on a journey to rebuild the lost archive and to make sure that the patients, staff, and neighbours of the Lakeshore Psychiatric Hospital are not forgotten.
