With the greatest number of mental health inpatient beds, the VA system has a substantial impact upon the mental health design landscape. Several new projects and design guides further evolve these design drivers. Starting with the VA's new Inpatient Mental Health Design guide, which covers residential rehabilitation and new or renovated inpatient psychiatric facilities throughout the VA system. From the new VAMC Puget Sound Mental Health and Research Building to the expanded VAMC Bay Pines campus to community-based outpatient clinics (CBOC) such as the VA Butler CBOC, these new projects reflect new approaches to care.
