At last year’s AHA annual meeting, a group of scholars convened to discuss mental health in the discipline of history. (The session, “Historians for Mental Health,” will be reprised at the 2018 meeting in Washington, DC.) Perspectives has been following conversations about the topic ever since, and we are pleased that three historians have contributed relevant pieces for this issue. Cover photo: Hans/Pixabay.
