National Asylum Workers Union: sources online!

All issues of the National Asylum Workers Union magazine between 1912-1929 have now been scanned and are available online through the Modern Records Centre's catalogue.

The journal includes information about the activities of the union, conditions for employees and some patients within asylums, and attitudes towards mental health during the early 20th century.

If there are out of copyright documents at the Modern Records Centre that you would like to see online, get in contact with us and help us to prioritise our digitisation programme.
