*''Literature/JourneyToChaos'' has an inversion with the Trickster's Shelter in Dnnac Ledo. It houses all the local elves who have gone insane due to immortality or traumatic experiences and it is run by a grandmotherly ApronMatron. She treats them as gently as porcelain and screens visitors to make sure their fragile states are not disturbed.

* In ''Literature/AStudyInEmerald'', the madhouses-as-entertainment is taken even further by a visiting prince of royal blood, who apparently gets the same entertainment from MindRape as visiting London's brothels. Oh yes, "royalty" here means "related to the EldritchAbominations who rule the world".

* One of the punishments for Prideful souls in ''Videogame/{{Afterlife}}'' is to be locked up in The Looney Bin, a decrepit insane asylum "combining the savage prison politics of San Quentin Scareantino with the humiliating patronizing of St. Elscare".

* The KaizersOrchestra song "Dieter Meyers Inst.", is about someone committing himself to a Bedlam House because he ''thinks'' he's crazy, and then actually goes crazy ''after'' he's there. And the end of the song is [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin just as crazy]]. The lyrics (and the translation) can be found [[http://www.songmeanings.net/songs/view/3530822107858553943/ here]], and the recording [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4BaqQrFgFQk here]].

* Ravencroft in the MarvelUniverse which somehow seems to feature mostly crazed [[SpiderMan Spidey villains]].

to:

* Ravencroft in the MarvelUniverse which somehow seems to feature mostly crazed [[SpiderMan Spidey villains]]. It was originally staffed by Dr. Ashley Kafka with Colonel John Jameson (son of the ''Daily Bugle'' publisher) heading security, and they were somewhat competent folks who actually managed to cure a few patients, including Vermin. (A victim of Baron Zemo's gene-splicing technology, Vermin was a rat-like cannibal and originally deemed a hopeless case; Kafka managed to cure him completely.) Unfortunately, both were fired due to some rash decisions by Kafka (she trusted the Chameleon too much in her efforts to help him) and the place only went downhill from there.

*** In one version his parents were both killed by crazies, he thought that he could cure the killer, the killer seems cured but kills his secretary in front of his eyes, then pleads for pity. Arkham decides that only discipline works against the "filth", that is revealed to not help with the super criminals either, so he starts murdering them. In another version, the killer thanks Arkham for his efforts by ''killing his entire family''. Arkham insists on continuing his treatment, and [[TranquilFury in a way does so -- by electro-shock therapying him to death.]]
** One {{Elseworld}}, ''The Batman of Arkham'', had Bruce Wayne as a psychiatrist in an early 20th century Arkham... where, in a surprising subversion, he genuinely helps people; The story opens with a breakthrough therapy session with Killer Croc, who is nearly rehabilitated because Dr. Wayne simply treated him like a human being instead of chaining him like an animal. Later, Wayne says that before he came, Arkham was indeed "the old Bedlam, where unfortunates were whipped, chained, and starved." But, under the later direction of Dr. Crane, it reverts to the old ways immediately. Things got better.

* In the sixth episode of ''MortalKombatLegacy'', Raiden arrives to Earthrealm into a mental hospital. Conveniently, his white outfit makes him look like a patient, so he is restrained and kept there (apparently, the fact that there's no record of the man being checked in doesn't faze the staff in the least). After several failed methods, including psychotherapy (talking) and psychopharmacology (drugs), the doctor chooses to lobotomize "Lord Raiden" to calm him down. Luckily for Raiden, he's a PhysicalGod, so it likely doesn't do any permanent damage to him. Not that it justifies the quack who thinks it's a great idea to remove parts of a patient's brain to keep him quiet. He probably has a jar of leeches in his office in case the lobotomy fails.

* The setting for the movie 'One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest' was a real asylum. Years after the filming it was discovered cremated remains had been simply abandoned in the facility. Real life horror, not movie horror.
