Cast in 1953 from the shackles and chains that once restrained people in psychiatric hospitals, the bell is a dramatic symbol of hope, vision and liberty for Americans with mental illness. Today the Mental Health Bell rings as a reminder that the more insidious chains of stigma and discrimination still bind people with mental illness. Health America s continued leadership in pursuing the vision described by the bell s inscription: Cast from the shackles which bound them, this bell shall ring out hope for the mentally ill and victory over mental illness.
