Christmas Campaign- Creating a Mental Health Safe Room

Campaign Ends Dec. 31, 2019

Please help us raise funds to create a mental health Safe Room this Christmas.

Creating a safe room allows staff to temporarily hold and care for patients suffering from different forms of mental illness, in a safe physical environment. The ideal safe room would include speakers and cameras so staff can monitor and communicate with the patient, shatter proof glass, in-room washroom and other features to help ensure the patient is kept comfortable and secure and treated with dignity while being treated.

The safe room will be used as a respite area in the hospital for patients showing signs of depression, aggression or suicidal tendencies, or if they are a threat to themselves or to others within our facility. The installation of a proper safe room will improve staff’s ability to safely treat the increasing volume of mental health patients and allow patients to de-escalate in a safe environment with few or no stressors.

Please take a moment and make a donation. Your gift will help provide a safe, secure place for those who need special care.
