Does anybody know what the first mental hospital the was in the U.S

I don’t feel like looking it up.

According to wikipedia:

Eastern State Hospital was the first psychiatric institution to be founded in the United States.

Thank for looking it up. What state was that hospital in?

It was in Williamsburg, the capital of the Virginia colony

Yay Virginia!

I hope it was tolerable. Probably some dank hole though.

Ayyy happy cake day @agent101g

In my mental health course I learned about ‘bedlam’. It is a psychiatric hospital in London which if I’m not mistaken was founded in the 13th century. People would pay money to visit and see the chained nuts. Sounds like a horror story.

The White House.
