SickKids Adolescent Mental Health Inpatient Unit

The newly renovated Adolescent Mental Health Inpatient Unit at Toronto’s SickKids Hospital is a healthcare architecture marvel for patients, families, and staff. The unit cares for children and youth from six to 17 years of age who are experiencing a broad range of complex mental health conditions, eating disorders, and medical conditions.

Our recent blog explores how SickKids addresses mental care needs. As a principal pediatric centre in North America, SickKids recognized that it needed to take the lead in providing better access to mental healthcare to improve patients’ mental health outcomes. Drawing on a 22-year design relationship with Parkin Architects, the hospital engaged our team to design a healing environment that meets the needs of all patients.
