Public Record Office Victoria holds extensive records from many of the institutions which have provided some form of care or control over people with a mental illness and people with an intellectual disability. Most of these records are clinical records, documenting the treatment of individuals admitted to mental institutions. Although the alphabetical listings of patients and the indexes to patients can be viewed online the case books about individual patients are not view-able online. So, note down the name, the institution and their admission date, then order the case books listed by location and date of admission to view patient case details in the relevant reading room. We hope what you’ll find will help with your research.
