Voluntary Boarders in County and Borough Asylums


The extension of the voluntary boarder system to the county and borough asylums has long been felt to be a necessity by all who are interested in promoting the early treatment of the insane. It is, moreover, only just that a provision of the law which is found to be good for the well-to-do classes should be extended to the poor. Dr. Ernest White has done good service in again giving prominence to this great need of the poor, in the recent discussion on the treatment of incipient insanity.
