“Too often, people suffering from mental illness are treated differently than people with other forms of disease. Working in Behavioral Health, I realized my designs could help relieve some of these stigmas.”

Behavioral Health

Behavioral health disorders are among the most prevalent forms of disease in the nation. Evidence-based design has demonstrated that clustered housing units, access to natural light, and retaining staff are all positive influences against these disorders.

At Array, we have taken great strides in pushing the envelope of designing for behavioral health facilities. We understand that there can be provisions for increased security, long-term acute care, structured activity, isolation, and group therapy while still infusing residential elements, warm colors, and an overall less “institutionalized” design.
