Once again, we have partnered with The Center for Healthcare Design (CHD) to provide resources and educational opportunities to the design community. This year we are sponsoring two webinar series and two interactive workshops focused on designing for mental and behavioral health environments.
The first webinar will take place on February 27th at 1pm EST and will focus on the building as a therapeutic tool. The webinar highlights a case study of the ErinoakKids Centre for Treatment and Development and explores how the design caused the building itself to become a tool for therapy, learning, and teaching. The second webinar that day will take place at 3pm EST and will focus on adapting existing healthcare spaces to suit behavioral health requirements. During this webinar there will be discussion regarding the complexity, terminology and methodology of designing a behavioral health facility. The date and content of the second webinar series will be announced shortly.
We’ve been supporting the Center for Health Design’s Behavioral Health Strategic Design Workshops since they began a few years ago. This year, the workshops will take place on May 21st in Los Angeles, CA, and September 23rd in Baltimore, MD. At each of these workshops you will hear the industry’s leading behavioral health facility design experts share how design is making a difference in the lives of children and adults faced with behavioral and mental health conditions.
As always, we enjoy partnering with the Center for Health Design so that we may help provide programs of value to the diverse healthcare design industry.
