DETAILS

The challenges created by today’s growing mental health and substance abuse crises, especially in light of the recent pandemic, reach far beyond the behavioral health unit into emergency departments, outpatient clinics and throughout acute and ambulatory care settings. 

To support improved care and enhance staff safety, today’s design, facility and care professionals have to advance their understanding of the environments impact on behavioral health care and learn how to incorporate the best and latest design solutions throughout all healthcare setting. 

This virtual workshop provides the latest in design thinking for behavioral health care and settings and offers state-of-the-art best practices through thought leader presentations, case studies, and panel discussions. Attendees will have opportunities to pose questions to workshop faculty and interact with fellow attendees in fun and innovative ways. 

 

Learning Objectives

  • Learn about trends in behavioral health and design and how a holistic, universally designed approach can advance health and wellness and address inequities in care.
  • Examine the safety needs of patients and staff in behavioral health settings and how various design strategies and details can balance safety with the patients’ need for autonomy and well-being.
  • Appreciate the inherent challenges in treating behavioral health patients who also have other physical diagnoses and explore designed settings that facilitate care for co-morbidities.
  • Understand the value of outdoor settings in behavioral healthcare and discuss design strategies to enable those setting experiences, both inside and out.
