HSPC Health Architects believe the built environment has great influence on the mental health of a patient. Therefore we craft environments based on the principle of Evidence Based Design to provide a physical framework that is secure, non-confrontational and has a positive influence on the delivery of safe patient focused care in a clinical setting that can be very challenging.
Mental Health facilities have a number of contradictory requirement to be simultaneously met. The building must minimise the capacity for a person to self-harm and be robust enough to withstand acts of aggression and some physical violence whilst not being stark and threatening. We have extensive experience of promoting a domestic ambience in a facility that is high secure and safe for patients, visitors and staff.
