“She was one of the first people to influence humane mental healthcare in the US. She set out to change perceptions of mental health.“ -Rachel K.
Dorothea Lynde Dix (1802-1887) was an American advocate on behalf of the indigent mentally ill who, through a vigorous and sustained program of lobbying state legislatures and the United States Congress, created the first generation of American mental asylums. During the Civil War, she served as a Superintendent of Army Nurses. -Wikipedia
