Better mental health through window design
from Behavioral Healthcare Executive
For patients in behavioral healthcare facilities, windows can serve as their primary connection to the outdoors. As is so often the case, facility design becomes part of therapy. Security and safety have long been designed into psychiatric facilities. We attend to ligature points and durability, as well as the group dynamics within this environment. But design needs to address more than security and safety. A therapeutic environment can be part of the healing process.
