Lier Psychiatric Hospital in Norway has a long history as an institution. The massive buildings house the memory of a grim chapter in Norwegian psychiatric history the authorities would rather forget. There is little available information about the former activities at Lier Hospital, but it is documented experiments that were carried out on this Norwegian mental hospital in the postwar period from 1945 to 1975. Its about the use of LSD, electroshock, brain research funded by the U.S. Department of Defense and drug research sponsored by major pharmaceutical companies. It is perhaps not surprising that they try to forget this place and the events taking place here.
Lier Psyciatric Hospital was built in 1926 and had room for nearly 700 patients at the most. In 1986, many of the buildings were closed and abandoned and they still stand empty to this day. Some of the buildings are still in operation today for psychiatric patients.
