The New Bedlam Rest Home for the Emotionally Interesting, also known as New Bedlam Insane Asylum and New Bedlam Mental Hospital, and the is a mental institution in Springfield.

When Homer was declared insane for wearing a pink shirt to work, he was sent to the New Bedlam.[1] A straightjacket from the institution was seen lying on the ground downtown.[2] Duffman once referenced Homer's being in a "loony bin."[3] While the power plant workers are cleaning trash from a highway, you can see a New Bedlam straightjacket littered among other assorted pieces of trash.

The New Bedlam Rest Home for the Emotionally Interesting recently appeared in The Simpsons: Tapped Out during the Homerpalooza 2017 Event as a premium building that costs 150 donuts.

New Bedlam is not the only insane asylum in Springfield - somebody may also be admitted to, or admit themselves to Calmwood Mental Hospital as Ned Flanders did in Hurricane Neddy.

In the "Treehouse of Horror IV" segment "Terror at 5½ Feet", Bart was deemed insane for his disruptive behavior about a gremlin trying to disable the school bus. Even though his claims were true, he was still sent to the asylum on a trolley for 'disruptive behaviour'.[4]
