In the second episode of “Off the Record,” Silas is joined by Steve Davis, historian for Bryce Hospital, and together they discuss what caused the decline of the historic Bryce Hospital.

They dissect the history of mental health services in the state of Alabama, exploring how Bryce Hospital started, the impact of the state legislature’s decisions on mental health services, and what the ruling of Wyatt v. Stickney means today.
