As the demand for mental health care services continues to surge worldwide, it has become increasingly evident that the built environment plays a pivotal role in providing safe, equitable, and effective care for behavioral health patients. In response to this pressing need, we aim to unite diverse voices in shaping the future of behavioral health. Our panel comprises experts from a range of fields, including behavioral health clinical expertise, administration, regulatory and policy, and design and planning. Together, we will explore emerging opportunities to forge a transformative future in behavioral health. Through this roundtable discussion, we will raise awareness and initiate a multidisciplinary conversation that examines the crisis and its impacts holistically, from all angles. By viewing behavioral health care through a comprehensive lens, we aim to propel meaningful change and progress.
