While the idea of being a resident in a mental health facility doesn’t appeal to too many people, the accommodations today are more like the Ritz Carleton compared to what the living conditions used to be in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s.

Back then, the focus was more on finding a place to stash away their sick aunt or uncle out of public sight rather than to find help for the loved one. Many asylum rooms were a cell, and overcrowding was a huge problem. For many asylums still standing, they are just an empty shell of what they once were and more menacing now than first built.
