[Comment] The wisdom of crowds

It is often assumed that the history of mental health is full of “terrible, dark places with chains and mistreatment”, says Alice White, Wikimedian in Residence at the Wellcome Library, London, UK (audio feature). White’s work is challenging that view. She hopes to “balance out some of the inaccuracies in the history of psychiatry and mental health” by promoting expert contributions to Wikimedia sites including Wikipedia, and “increasing accessibility” to the Wellcome Library’s extensive archives.
