Description: As attitudes toward people with mental illnesses have changed, so have the names of the places that care for them. Many state hospitals were officially labeled as institutions for the "insane" or "lunatics" (e.g., the Georgia State Lunatic Asylum and the West Virginia Hospital for the Insane), but such stigmatizing titles have been dropped in favor of words such as "recovery" and, in the case of the facility in this months cover story (page 14), "hope." Perhaps as a natural progression of that trend, some agencies serving people with developmental and intellectual disabilities are considering whether to remove "mental retardation" from their names.
