The Institute of Living

Founded in 1822, The Institute of Living was one of the first mental health centers in the United States and the first hospital of any kind in Connecticut. It is located on 35 acres and was landscaped by Frederick Law Olmsted.

Becoming a Division of Hartford Hospital in 1994, it remains one of America's leading not-for-profit centers for comprehensive patient care, research and education in the fields of behavioral, psychiatric and addiction disorders.
