CHARLOTTE, N.C. – People who use a Charlotte group therapy room will now be more comfortable, thanks to IKEA.

The furniture store is partnering with Monarch to give the organization’s facility a makeover. Monarch provides specialty mental health and human services.

IKEA donated new chairs, tables, plants, window treatments, and other items.

 “It’s simple, when people are comfortable, people are really authentic and can take time to truly express and engage in relevant conversations,” Monarch Vice President of Operations Derrick Jordan says.
