Designed for the Mind: Environments for Behavioral Telehealth Delivery

The COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent economic downturn has adversely affected the mental health of the nation and has created new barriers for people already suffering from mental illness and substance use disorders. This phenomenon has resulted in a second public health emergency—a global mental health crisis.  We continue to see an increase in mental health issues among the general population while organizations begin to plan ahead as demands begin to elevate. What is being done to help meet this coming surge? A significant emphasis has been placed on telehealth to deliver care across the entire behavioral health continuum of care now and into the future. As patients and mental health professionals become accustomed to technological advancements related to this area, the more realistic this type of remote therapy becomes. Due to this increased demand and wide acceptance of telemental health services, design and construction solutions need to adapt to the mass adoption of this platform. This webinar examines how behavioral health facilities can prepare for the future of mental healthcare delivery.
