Mental disorders in history.

So after talking to Paddy about my ideas yesterday I’ve slightly changed my direction.

looking at old treatments

first diagnosis, before what was it classed as, how was it treated
victorian times
treated like witches?

applying the truth of could they have had it and what happened to them, comparing them to now, and what we know now
