  August 17, 2015

The National Association of Psychiatric Health Systems (NAPHS) and the Facility Guidelines Institute (FGI) announced a transfer of the Internet home for the Design Guide for the Built Environment of Behavioral Health Facilities. Formerly housed on the NAPHS website, the Design Guide is now available on the FGI website at www.fgiguidelines.org/beyond. 

The Design Guide authors are James M. Hunt, AIA, NCARB, and David M. Sine, DrBE, ARM, CSP, CPHRM.

“We at FGI are expanding our mission to publish documents that go beyond the fundamental facility design requirements we are known for,” said Douglas Erickson, CEO of FGI. “We are pleased to have been asked to publish this valuable document, which provides information based on the authors’ long experience in the field that will help those in behavioral health develop safe and effective care environments for patients and staff.”

The Design Guide is intended to help facilities think through how the physical environment affects patient and staff safety.
