Art for Behavioral healthcare

Behavioral healthcare facilities are designed to assure the well-being of their patients, and to safeguard them from potential self-harm. Art installations present a unique challenge. While proven to be essential to creating holistically therapeutic environments that promote feelings of safety, security, and wellness, the physical characteristics of traditional art installations can create potential opportunities and materials for self-harm.
