A Century of Compassion Reflections on Johns Hopkins Psychiatry
The year 2013 marks 100 years since the dedication of the Henry Phipps Psychiatric Clinic at Johns Hopkins. With a single philanthropic gift from a generous industrialist and the vision of founding director Adolf Meyer, Hopkins helped to shift American psychiatry from asylums to academic medicine where psychiatric illnesses could be studied and treated. Through the voices of our present-day clinicians, researchers, students, patients, and donors, this film reflects on the history, guiding principles, and legacy of those who launched the department and those who sustained it throughout the last century. Here is a sampling of the people and ideas that make possible an exciting and hopeful future -- the next 100 years of Johns Hopkins Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences. http://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/psychiatry/100years
