Most mental hospitals are now closed in Massachusetts, and many with mental illness and addictions are relegated to our jails and prisons. We need to review the issue with the same objectivity and compassion of Dorothea Dix.

I think it has been time for a new generation of Dorothea Dix's. I have had a passion of the medical field since I was 7. I just got to go to college for it!

Dorothea Lynde Dix was conceived on April 4, 1802 in Hampden, Maine. Her folks were Joseph and Mary Dix. Her dad was a voyaging minister and alcoholic. Her mom was touchy and unfit to deal with the family duties. Since her mom was not able deal with her family alone, Dorothea administered to her two more youthful siblings and helped with family errands. The weight of dealing with the family took its work on Dorothea. When she was twelve, she fled from home. She lived with different relatives in Worcester, Massachusetts.Cash for cars in orange county.
