Design in mental health online:
solve the biggest ligature risk in mental health

We're delighted to share the recording and resources of the webinar 'Solve the biggest ligature risk in mental health' as part of our involvement in Design in Mental Health Online.

Spoiler: Doors present the greatest ligature risk in mental health inpatient facilities.

Clinical staff can’t be everywhere at once; and the integration of assistive door alarm technology is increasing. With different options available, how can you make the most informed decision?

In this webinar, we discuss:

  • Research and feedback from clinicians and estates teams demonstrating the need for full-door ligature detection
  • Key considerations when selecting a ligature detection system
  • Mental health care providers who are saving lives with the integration of full-door ligature alarms
