Abstract:
The aim of this thesis is to provide a local history of post-war mental health services beyond the asylum. The particular setting is Manchester and Salford, two adjacent but culturally and historically distinct cities in the north west of England. Through the lens of their mental health services, the thesis explores the post-war history of mental health care in England and Wales, from the mauguration of the NHS in 1948 through to its fiftieth anniversary in 1998.
