unityZoom program

On November 18 at 5 p.m. on Zoom, we learn who has lived and worked at New Hampshire Hospital throughout its 180-year history. From its original conception to its founding as the New Hampshire Asylum in 1842, the institution has seen tremendous changes and challenges. dr Drawing on historical records and personal accounts from patients, nurses and doctors, Paul Shagoury, former Chief Psychologist at New Hampshire Hospital in Concord, will show how their personal experiences at the hospital reveal a larger story – one filled with hope and practicality, successes and disappointments – about our society’s attempts to understand and treat what we now call insanity.
