Aftercare: our journey 1907-2017

This is the history of Australia’s longest-serving mental health NGO, now called Stride. Aftercare was founded by Emily Paterson, a blind woman who spent much of her childhood living next door to Gladesville Mental Hospital. The book, edited by Aftercare’s then public relations team, was published in December 2017.
