The Athens Mental Health Center Cemetery #1 (one of The Ridges mental health hospital cemeteries) is located off Dairy Lane in Athens, Ohio (Athens Township, Athens County). The coordinates are 39° 18' 54.11" N, 82° 7' 1.24" W. I found the cemetery (as well as the other two Ridges cemeteries) with the help of Tonee's EXCELLENT here to see her directions on the Eccentric Ohio website.

This is the middle Ridges cemetery in terms of age. It is very similar in appearance to the oldest cemetery, with rows and rows of simple gravestones that contain only a patient number. A handful of the state-purchased gravestones have been replaced by family members. The new gravestones contain names and dates.
