Comfort in times of crisisCommunity rallies together for the QEII’s Psychiatric Emergency Care Suites
525 donors came together to fund the transformation of the QEII’s Psychiatric Emergency Care Suites – supporting those facing a mental health crisis.
Take a virtual tour of the new suites, which are located within the QEII's Charles V. Keating Emergency and Trauma Centre.
A redesign of the QEII Psychiatric Emergency Care Suites has completely transformed this essential entry point into the mental health system into what it needs to be – a space of healing.
This newly designed place of comfort and support will help build trust with people who are taking their first steps to seek treatment for their mental health and offer an essential resource to our community during what has been an incredibly difficult couple of years – for all of us.
The redesign of the QEII’s Psychiatric Emergency Care Suites is part of the QEII Foundation’s We Are campaign. Here are some key benefits that donors have made possible in this newly-transformed space:
WEIGHTED FURNITURE that cannot easily be lifted or moved for improved safety, dignity and comfort
DIMMABLE LIGHTS to create a soft, calming environment, an escape from the fluorescent lighting of a typical hospital room
CALMING COLOURS to promote relaxation and peace
REINFORCED WALLS to prevent holes and damage for increased safety and sanitation
