Front line staff need procedures and technology to drive prevention, and to detect concerning items that could harm others or be used for self-harm.

Cell phones that can disrupt the therapy and recovery process. These are real everyday occurrences and threats.
This white paper provides insights into the practices that behavioral health security leaders should consider to mitigate long term safety risks.
