Video – Susan Bartlett Foote

We are offering a video by Susan Bartlett Foote who tells the story of Unitarians in Minnesota reforming the state mental health system. The story is full of lessons about how to conduct a successful social justice campaign. Susan Bartlett Foote tells the story well.

Susan Bartlett Foote, a professor emerita in the School of Public Health in Minnesota, speaks about her book The Crusade For Forgotten Souls – Reforming Minnesota’s Mental Institutions, 1946-1954, University of Minnesota Press, 2018.   May we take pride and learn from the fortitude and dedication of our Unitarian forbears how to make a difference in issues of mental health.
