The Center for Health Design is making an interactive diagram available that can be used to develop behavioral and mental health environments. It is available free of charge at https://www.healthdesign.org/tools/interactive-design-diagrams/inpatient-rooms/behavioral-mental-health-room As the linked to website indicates, “Two goals are often at the center of current care models for behavioral and mental health: safety and healing. Most recently, the design of in-patient rooms for behavioral and mental health has focused on safety for both patients and staff through checklists for ligature-resistance. While safety is always a driver, we shouldn’t lose a strong emphasis on healing for this specialized care. Each organization will need to balance priorities and evaluate risk to establish an appropriate solution to meet specific performance standards and address anticipated patient acuity. Generally, the evidence base for design of behavioral and mental health in-patient rooms focuses on deinstitutionalized design aesthetic that provides a sense of being both welcoming and safe.” At the same web location noted, a report is available which details for particular design elements (e.g., layout, sound-masking equipment, and flooring) desirable outcomes they can potentially make more likely, design strategies to reach those outcomes, and related research references.
