What impact do design decisions have on behavioral health outcomes?

Behavioral Health

Don’t miss this affordable, high-return day – a unique opportunity to learn from experts, idea-share with colleagues and re-charge your professional batteries to prepare you for today and tomorrow’s behavioral health challenges:

  • What role can the built environment play in solving the growing mental health and substance abuse crises?
  • What impact do your design decisions have?
  • Are you making use of the best and latest design solutions?

Design is making a difference in the lives of children and adults faced with these conditions, in the safety of the staff who treat and care for them, and in the financial and legal challenges faced by providers.

Join us for this one day interactive, collaborative, problem-solving workshop where design, facility and care professionals will offer lessons learned and new thinking in design strategies that support improved care for behavioral health.
