The 25 bed Psychiatric Unit is physically linked to the Assiniboine Centre on the campus of Brandon Health Centre. The exterior of the building is designed to relate to its four storey neighbour and yet reflect a residential and non-threatening image. This facility replaced the institutional “turn-of-the-century” Brandon Mental Health Centre on “the hill”.
The centre is separated into a secure inpatient unit and an outpatient program area. The outpatient area includes an ECT Therapy and Recovery Room, GroupTherapy, Occupational Therapy and Professional Offices, with the provision for a satellite lab. The layout permits unobstructed sight lines and avoids hidden corners.
