The Singer Mental Health Center has been closed for nearly six years. Just a few days ago, a guy got in and took some eerie footage.

The video, posted to Abandoned or Cool's YouTube channel shows the outside and inside of the controversial mental health center.

Controversy swirled in late 2012 when the Singer Center was set to close. After a year of protests, lawsuits, and layoffs, the place was permanently closed on October 12.

Six years later, what is left behind is a rather sad Rockford landmark. Abandoned and vandalized, Singer Mental Health Center in its current state, like the man in the video, said, is straight out "of a scene from the Walking Dead."
