Mental health

Mental health

The World Health Organisation defines wellbeing as a complete state of physical, mental and social wellbeing and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. This is significant as it identifies the correlation between physical with mental wellbeing and mirrors current practice in mental health delivery.

As we are being urged to break down the barriers and stigma associated with mental health, there is a lot that can be done by manufacturers and specifiers to deliver patient and staff benefits by contributing to improved living environments for patients and working environments for staff.

The physical safety of patients has been linked with the maintenance of the built environment to promote feelings of security and wellbeing. Where physical safety and security break down, patients can lose trust in staff and treatments, which can lengthen recovery times.

Mental health encompasses many conditions and almost as many centres for treatment. At their core, however, are certain recurring concerns

  • Protecting the vulnerable
  • Protecting staff, patients, visitors and the broader community
  • Creating the right environment in which therapeutic care may thrive
  • Enabling an individualised yet holistic approach
