Behavioral Health Workshop May 2020

May 2020

The Workshop 

Don’t miss this, high-return day to problem-solve with experts, idea-share with colleagues and obtain new strategies and resources to address behavioral health challenges not only in specialized units, but in emergency departments, outpatient clinics and throughout acute care settings. 

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

Back by popular demand, this interactive collaborative, problem-solving workshop is intended to enable design professionals to employ physical design strategies and methodologies that support improved care for behavioral health. Join us and engage with a faculty of experts in behavioral health and design to set the stage for the path forward.
