Index of Psychiatric Symptoms in Abandoned London Psychiatric Hospital
Located deep in the tunnels of the abandoned London psychiatric hospital is a library, found in the library was a box full of cards that listed various Psychiatric Symptoms, simply labeled “Symptom Index”
Upon further inspection, inside this box were tabs each listing psychiatric symptoms and within each tab was a case/study that was performed on patients, what the remedy was and what the results were. All also contained the name of the publication that could be found in the library that contained the full report as well as the year that the study was done.
Here is a selection of the the symptom cards that I pulled out and photographed. Some of these “Symptoms” are rather shocking and might be found to be offensive, equally as shocking are the methods used to “cure” things like homosexuality.
Here is a look at what the cards contained.
