Would you take your incipient psychosis to this man?

Early last century, Henry Maudsley campaigned to make psychiatric treatment available to patients on a voluntary basis. So good for him. Well done, H. Nice work. Way to go. But frankly I'm more impressed by information just in: Henry Maudsley was born in the Parish of Giggleswick, grew up in Wigglesworth and Long Preston, the latter opposite Wigglesworth on the other side of the river Ribble. Giggleswick!

You can go in voluntary and get certified when you try to leave. Watch out.

I worked at Mont Park. Gigglepalace.

And sprinkle fairy dust on blue bells whilst fluttering about on tiny fairy wings?
