Free Behavioral & Mental Health Toolbox Expands Resources

The Center for Health Design has expanded the Behavioral & Mental Health Toolbox with new resources. Each toolbox contains a library of Center staff-curated content – research findings, expert insights, strategies, tools and other useful resources connecting the built environment to better health outcomes and reduced cost of care. Typically, a portion of each of the Topic Toolboxes is free and open to all, while Affiliate+ members have access to the complete toolbox. However, in partnership with Accurate Lock & Hardware, Altro, Whitehall Manufacturing and architecture+, the Center is providing access to all behavioral and mental health materials produced for this toolbox free and open to all through February 2022.

Originally launched in 2018, this toolbox is designed to assist healthcare organizations, designers, suppliers and others involved in the planning, design, construction and operation of behavioral and mental health facilities with pertinent tools. New resources to this toolbox include:
