Mental and Behavioral Health Facilities: Critical Research and Design Recommendations
Mardelle Shepley, Design and Environmental Analysis, Cornell

Wednesday, February 22, 2017
12:00-1:00 PM
Beebe Hall, 2nd floor conference room



Research on the design of mental and behavioral health facilities is available but limited, although the shortcomings of these facilities are well-known. Dr. Mardelle Shepley will describe design features that are believed to positively impact staff, patients, and families in psychiatric environments and provide information related to their presence in existing facilities. Her research project involved both qualitative and quantitative methods. Dr. Shepley will share results involving a variety of topics including the appropriateness of private rooms, deinstitutionalization, access to nature, and open nursing station design. She will also provide guidelines for mental and behavioral health facilities.

Mardelle Shepley is a professor in the Department of Design and Environmental Analysis and associate director of the Institute for Healthy Futures. She serves on the graduate field faculty in the Department of Architecture. A fellow in the American Institute of Architects, she has authored/co-authored six books, including Healthcare Environments for Children and their Families (1998), A Practitioner’s Guide to Evidence-based Design (2008), Design for Critical Care (2009), Health Facility Evaluation for Design Practitioners (2010), Design for Pediatric and Neonatal Critical Care (2014) and Design for Mental and Behavioral Health (2017).

This talk is open to all. Lunch will be served. Metered parking is available in the Botanic Gardens lot across the road from Beebe Hall. No registration or RSVP required except for groups of 5 or more. We ask that larger groups email Patty at pmt6@cornell.edu letting us know of your plans to attend so that we can order enough lunch.
