Our Colorado Mental Health Institute at Pueblo (CMHIP) celebrated its 135th year of service with an open house this week.
More than 300 CMHIP retirees, staff and Pueblo residents browsed through a collection of antique Public Safety Department badges, shoulder patches and photos of their history.
A special display of recently acquired artifacts from the Geriatrics Unit basement displays unclaimed personal articles that belonged to patients from the 1880s. Photo albums, scrapbooks, a strait jacket, a restraint chair, and old medical equipment tell the story of how far Colorado has come in treating people with mental illness.
