Winnipeg Inpatient Mental Health Play Space

Winnipeg, MB

For our youngest population suffering from mental illness, the right environment can speed up healing time, reducing time spent in the hospital. In addition, a properly thought-out mental illness treatment centre can make what time is spent in hospital a more positive experience. The Inpatient Mental Health play space was developed from an under-utilized, tiny side yard adjacent to the Children’s Hospital of Manitoba. The new imaginative and interactive space is a safe and secure area for children admitted to the Child and Adolescent Mental Health inpatient unit to play, exercise, and enjoy the outdoors. The space includes areas for team sports, independent workouts and yoga providing a place for children to exercise and enjoy the outdoors.
