Clifford Beers Clinic

 The clinic was created in 1913.  It is named for a Yale graduate from New Haven who was one of five children in a family, all of whom spent time in mental hospitals.  When Clifford Beers left the hospital, he wrote an autobiographical account of his hospitalization and the abuses he suffered.

Clifford Beers Clinic is one of the largest providers of child, adolescent, and young adult mental health care in New Haven County.
