Shenley Hospital

From the day it opened in 1934, Shenley Hospital in Hertfordshire was always intended to be at the cutting edge of mental health care. Treatments included malaria fever therapy, electro-convulsive therapy and insulin coma therapy. It also hosted a mother-and-baby unit and was home to an antipsychiatry experiment.
