The planning and design of behavioral facilities can improve the well-being and outcomes of people with mental health issues. Behavioral health is no longer one-size-fits-all; facilities require different approaches to design along the continuum of care. The presentation will cover industry trends within the continuum of care and population health and how primary and secondary research can inform planning and design of behavioral health facilities to enhance the therapeutic goals and well-being of people with mental health issues.

Planning, design, and construction can create a ripple effect that begins with planning and extends well beyond a hospital’s grand opening. This presentation will discuss the catalytic effect a hospital can have on population health and make recommendations for strategies for participants to implement within their own organizations. The session will include improving the patient experience, safety, quality, brand awareness, economic impact, outreach efforts, population health and wellness, and opportunities for partnership.

The diverse team of presenters will provide statistics and findings from ASHE surveys that have focused on equity issues. The goal is to share experiences, concerns, and strategies for a diverse work force and how to engage the best and brightest talent.
