Occupational Therapy

OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY First used to treat mental disorders by Seneca (4 BC–AD 65). Galen (AD 129–200) commented ‘employment is nature’s best physician’ in AD 172. Simple activities were used successfully in a mental hospital in Philadelphia by Benjamin Rush (1745–1813) in 1798. Occupation as a form of treatment for mental illnesses was also proposed by Samuel Tuke (1784–1857) of York in 1815 and John Conolly (1794–1866) at the Hanwell Asylum in London in 1843. It was introduced into other medical specialties in the 19th century.
