Event description: 

The built form of the psychiatric hospital signals how society responds to mental health. These buildings have the ability to create positive reflections or conjure images of the mental health institution as a figure of ‘Otherness.‘ Among BIPOC communities, mental health care is frequently limited and commonly linked to detention orders requiring hospital stays. The Hospital Panel will imagine progressive models that dismantle prevalent perceptions of mental health and improve equitable access and experiences of clients inhabiting these architectures.
