The Cornell Institute for Healthy Futures hosted its first roundtable on Mental and Behavioral Health Design on October 15-16, 2017. The event brought together clinical practitioners, designers and architects, and design researchers to focus on identifying the most pressing issues associated with improving the quality of mental health services and facility designs.

With a steadily growing population of adults in the United States reporting serious psychological distress, CIHF aimed to identify critical issues with industry experts. The roundtable provided informative discussion and presentations on the current status of mental health programs and facilities, recent research on design, the impediments architects, designers, and health management are facing, and opportunities to develop successful designs and programs.
