La Borde is a psychiatric clinic that opened in 1951, near the town of Cour-Cheverny in the Loire Valley of France. The clinic was established with the goal of becoming everything the word "asylum" once meant: a shelter, a place of refuge, a sanctuary. Still in operation today, La Borde has been a defining model in the field of institutional psychotherapy. It is an innovative psychiatric clinic where patients are liberated to actively participate in the running the facility.
