"This cairn is placed here to commemorate 
the Centennial of Brandon Mental Health Centre and is 
dedicated to (the people affected by mental illness 
and those who have chosen to dedicate their working lives to that important aspect of health).
For 100  years the centre has served Brandon and surrounding area.
In 1891, it was known as The Asylum For The Insane. 
This name was changed in 1919 when it became 
The Brandon Mental Hospital for Mental Diseases. 
The Centre was given its present name in 1972."
