“Every facility has different needs that fit within the framework of treatment and the goal of healing. Our goal is to develop solutions that respond to these unique needs. And, although the traditional stigma associated with mental health seems to have begun to be shed, it is still important to develop solutions that inherently advocate for the treatment and normalization of this population.”
