Learn about a piece of Cleveland’s forgotten history with an in-depth look at the Cleveland State Hospital, an imposing Gothic-style structure originally built to house those suffering from mental illness. This month’s Talk & Tour will include a lecture and a peek at some of the archive collections associated with the hospital.

This Month’s Program

Built for Good: Cleveland State Hospital

Built with good intentions for the treatment of those suffering from mental illness, Cleveland State Hospital’s patient practices quickly took a turn. How did a hospital built on progressive principles of compassionate care devolve into a national symbol of neglect and abuse? Drawn from manuscripts of investigative reporters sent to expose the hospital’s practices, this program will discuss the state of mental healthcare in 1950s Cleveland and the community’s efforts to keep up with the changing trends in the mental health field.
