The article offers information on the history of the Seacliff Lunatic Asylum or Kingscliff owned by Frederic Truby King in Otago, New Zealand. It is stated that soldiers suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder arrived at Seacliff. According to physician Warwick Brunton, some physicians believed that it was a psychological reaction to stress while others were much less sympathetic. It also mentions that Kingscliff was sold by Truby to the Public Works Department in 1929.
