Goodna Girls

Adele Chenowyth


Goodna Girls (2019) by Adele Chynoweth is an account of children, including state wards, being incarcerated in the adult psychiatric facility, Wolston Park Hospital, Queensland.

Part of the rationale was that 'juvenile delinquents' needed medical intervention, including the use of chemical restraints.

Goodna Girls includes the oral histories of former inmates as well as former staff of Wolston Park.
