Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Mansfield Training School and Hospital was a psychiatric hospital in Mansfield, Connecticut run by the state of Connecticut. It was active from 1860 to 1993.

The hospital opened in 1860 as the Connecticut School for Imbeciles at Lakeville. Its name was changed to the Connecticut Training School for the Feebleminded at Lakeville in 1915. Two years later, it merged with the Connecticut Colony for Epileptics (founded in 1910) and acquired its present name.[1]

In 1993, after numerous lawsuits concerning the conditions of the hospital, Mansfield Training School was closed and its patients sent to outpatient facilities and other institutions.[2] The buildings were split between the Bergin Correctional Institution and the University of Connecticut.[3]
