The Extra Mile

— Points of Light Volunteer Pathway —

Inspired by her social conscience, Dorothea Dix launched a self-financed career aimed at improving the lives of the mentally ill. Her mission to document squalid institutional living conditions and inhumane treatment built public awareness and redefined political thought, leading to better treatment practices.
"I encounter nothing which a determined will, created by the necessities of the cause I advocate does not enable me to vanquish."
