Next Section – Mike at School (from ‘My Brother Michael’)

Mike spent many years at Willowbrook, a large mental institution that stood for many years in Staten Island, NY, USA. It was a warehouse, and was described by Robert F. Kennedy as a ‘snake pit’.

Mike was in the class of Willowbrook patients that was gradually re-housed in group homes throughout the state. I was surprised when I found out Mike would attend a day school.
