A dreamer lives for reality



The Cassel Hospital  (NHS) introduced the concept of “therapeutic community” to the world in 1946. Instead of treating patients as passively ill, they are encouraged to take active responsibility for running the hospital and supporting each others’ treatment.

In The Cassel Hospital’s centenary year, patients are sharing their unique memories and records with KCL: the Strand Campus, Kings Building. You’re invited to shape an oral history film and archive resource, co-directed by Emmy-award winning filmmaker Rob Lemkin.
