Design of mental health facilities plays a crucial role in safety and well-being of inpatients as well as therapeutic outcome.

A proper physical environment is also ensuring safety and reduces sentinel events number including suicide attempts. 

The design process of built environment of mental health facilities is governed by different therapeutic priorities and requires implementation of different methods of care taking and guarding patients than in other hospitals as well as dedicated design solutions.

Shaping built environment of mental health facilities is a process that requires predominantly adaptation of introduced solutions to particular patterns of patient behaviour and specific procedures

Next to patient outcomes and the quality of therapy, architecture is the most visible and representative part of healthcare system. Both outcomes and the quality of treatment and therapy are strongly dependent on the quality of built environment.

All design decisions are supported by research and practise and consulted with top specialists in psychiatry, forensic psychiatry and psychiatric nursing.
