On Arts Wednesday ??? 2018, Sylvia’s guest was Adrian Mitchell, talking about his latest book. The story of what happened on Peat Island is a truly shocking one. However, it is also the story of government attitudes to mental health: neglect and underfunding. And, in Adrian’s opinion, there is no happy ending in sight. Peat Island was decommissioned in 2010 and entered onto the register of the National Trust in 2018.
