About Us

The Mental Health Museum is based at Fieldhead Hospital in Wakefield.

Home to an extraordinary collection of objects, the museum is also a space for broader debates around mental health care history, to promote wellbeing, combat mental health stigma, and be active in social justice.

We aim to become a leading resource for the history of mental health care in the UK, and debates surrounding mental health and lived experiences.

We work together with people who access mental health services, carers, friends and family, staff and our visitors to explore mental health histories and challenge beliefs and perspectives. You can read about the history of the museum here.
