The History Department recently unveiled "Mental Health at Michigan," a digital public history exhibit and part of the Michigan in the World initiative. A team of undergraduate fellows, including three Honors students, Sam Franz, Estrella Salgado, and Kia Schwert, helped bring this project to fruition. Along with faculty support, they spent a socially-distanced spring semester researching, writing, and editing each of the five stories that present a "different dimension of mental health as it was studied, treated, and experienced at Michigan during the mid-twentieth century."

Says Assistant Professor Henry Cowles, "The postwar period was an especially crucial time in the histories of both UM and psychology, one with important lessons for how we confront personal and public crises in our own time."
