Center for Health Design Launches New Behavioral and Mental Health Toolbox
DAS is proud to be an affiliate of The Center for Health Design and for the opportunity to work together to advocate for the advancement of healthcare art programs. To help this cause, CHD has just released a new portion of an online Topic Toolbox titled “Behavioral & Mental Health.” Comprised of new, staff-curated content, this toolbox is designed to create a multi-faceted resource for healthcare organizations, emergency departments, suppliers and more. Through a partnership with architecture+, Stance Healthcare and Whitehall Manufacturing, CHD announced all the materials published in this toolbox are accessible for free until March 2019.
The release of the “Behavioral & Mental Health” toolbox comes at a much-needed time; as behavioral and mental health (BMH) conditions affect one in five adults in the U.S. annually, (Center for Health Design). This toolbox seeks to combat these pathways to psychological harm associated with care. By implementing design interventions that improve cognitive wellbeing, healthcare providers can cost-effectively help abate BMH comorbidities.
