Historic Mental Institutions
This is a working map to be used as a visual aid to the locations of mental institutions in the U.S. It is an important tool in visually representing the number of institutions in the U.S., how they are distributed, and their current status. Cottage style institutions seem fairly evenly spread across the map while Kirkbrides heavily populate the east half of the U.S. The conversion to correctional facility is an rising trend. This is a working map, it is subject to changes and the corrections. Please use the contact page, if you have any comments or corrections.
Please respect that this is a visual tool to be used solely as a representative aid and should not be used as contact information to visit any of these sites without their permission. Many of these institutions remain operational and patient privacy is extremely important to respect. Trespassing on these sites is forbidden.
