Highlights

Larundel Psychiatric Hospital was “the madhouse on the edge of town” at Bundoora until the 1990s.

Join Sandy Jeffs, a former inmate who became an advocate for her ‘mad’ comrades and is now a poet of distinction, along side Margaret Leggatt, sociologist, occupational therapist and activist for the friends and families of those with a mental health condition.

Their book recently won the Victorian Community History Awards 2020, oral history, and will be available for sale on the night.
