The Transformations exhibition combines the traveling exhibit The Lives They Left
Behind with historical insights and a study of care facilities and programs for treating
mental illness in the Gainesville, Florida area.
These different components show how our understanding of mental illnesses and
treatments for these conditions changed dramatically, especially in the past 100
years. While patients could be sent to the Willard facility and remain there for life,
now we focus on treating and bringing back into the community those with such a
diagnosis.
Instead of leaving their lives behind, psychiatric patients increasingly receive
treatments that help them retain rather than lose their humanity.
