Description

The shortage of mental health beds for youth is a nationwide problem. One organization overcame legislative hurdles to fill the gap with a new psychiatric hospital. The hospital remains at 100% capacity and turns away five patients per day. PrairieCare used staff and parent input, product research, and best practices to create a highly secure setting that is aesthetically approachable, tailored to its population, and non-institutional. Patient and staff surveys provide lessons learned for care delivery and design innovations.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss the significant need for mental health services and facilities and the hurdles of navigating a specific legislative process.
  • Explain the shifts in design for today‚Äôs non-institutionalized psychiatric settings.
  • Apply specific architectural solutions that prioritize patient safety while balancing aesthetics and facility maintenance.
  • Describe examples of specific post-occupancy feedback from patients and staff.

Speaker(s):

  • Erica Larson, CID, CHID, EDAC, LEED AP BD+C, Principal, Pope Architects
  • John Ryan, JD, General Counsel, PrairieCare
