Behavioral healthcare furniture needs to support your efforts to help your consumers heal, while keeping everyone safe.

Understanding the specific needs of the patient population, staff and visitors is crucial to behavioral healthcare facility design due to unique needs like managing self-harm risk, preventing assemblies that can be used as weapons, eliminating sharp edges, minimizing contraband, and optimizing independence.
