Supporting Resources for Behavioral and Mental Health Design

A Partnership Focused on Evidence-Based Design Tools

hcdesign-patient-center-medical-homeOntario, Canada – For the second year in a row, Stance Healthcare, a manufacturer of furniture for healing environments, has partnered with The Center for Health Design (CHD), the principal provider of healthcare design research, education and advocacy.

This ongoing partnership continues to focus on evidence-based design tools, resources and educational opportunities for behavioral and mental health design. More specifically, the expansion of their Behavioral & Mental Health toolbox, a workshop in September and informational webinars.

Re-launched this month, the Behavioral & Mental Health toolbox contains a library of research findings, expert insights, strategies, tools, and other useful resources connecting the built environment to better health outcomes and reduced cost of care. New resources this year include 6 webinars, 1 interview, 1 lessons learned document, 1 blog and 1 list of related resources. Stance Healthcare’s partnership with the CHD has made these toolbox materials available and free to all until March 2020.

In September Stance Healthcare will once again be sponsoring a Behavioral Health workshop focused on designing for mental and behavioral health facilities. Taking place in Baltimore, Maryland, attendees will gain insights and strategies on this growing area of design.

“With increased knowledge, we are undergoing an evolution of change when it comes to designing for behavioral health environments,” says Carl Kennedy, President. “We appreciate the value The Center for Health Design brings to the industry, and are pleased to have the opportunity to partner with them again on this behavioral and mental health initiative.”
