groups, in addition to certain out-

Back in the 18 00's, Eloise was a
poor farm, later being established
as a contagious disease hospital.
With the growing of Detroit, it was
found necessary to provide greater
psychiatric care. Wayne County,
therefore, provided facilities with
the aid of some state support.
* * *
ALTHOUGH not as large as the
Michigan State Hospital outside
of Ypsilanti, nor as modern as the
Northville Mental Hospital in up-
state Michigan, Eloise is represen-
tative of the large state mental in-
The physical plant of Eloise
includes a bakery, conservatory,
fire department, laundry, and
leather shop. A farm, with com-
mercial as well as therapeutic
advantages, is also included in
the area of the institution.
As far as its medical staff, Eloise
is also typical of the general men-
tal hospital. Its staff of 14 psychi-
atrists allows only one doctor for
every 280 mhental patients. Two
psychologists and a social service
staff aid this psychiatric nucleus.
Because of the limited staff,
many patients receive only the
standard electric and insulin shock
treatments. Spencer Sterne, chief
psychologist at Eloise, said that
because of lack of facilities and
staff narrows intensive individual
treatment to only the most hope-
therapy, and music therapy are
also utilized at Eloise. However,
the very minimum of attention is
given to those patients whose
chances for recovery are judged to
be very poor.
