As an extra treat for our readers, HEALTHCARE DESIGN is proud to present Behavioral Healthcare magazine's first annual Design for Health and Human Services Showcase. Originally published in the July/August 2009 issue of our sister publication, Behavioral Healthcare, the showcase features the latest in behavioral healthcare facility design, presented in a format similar to our own HEALTHCARE DESIGN Architectural Showcase.

For those of you unfamiliar with Behavioral Healthcare, please note that each and every issue features facility design content, in addition to being a resource on technology, reimbursement, treatment, and other trends in mental healthcare, substance use treatment, and other related disciplines. The magazine's Web site also features an online resource center devoted exclusively to facility design ( As with HEALTHCARE DESIGN, subscriptions to Behavioral Healthcare are totally free of charge to subscribers living in the United States. I encourage HEALTHCARE DESIGN readers interested in this field to visit to sign up.
