In this Psychology Behind the Headlines segment, hosts Patricia Wu, Jessica Reyes, and MHTN Chief Medical Officer Dr. Dan Bober discuss how a new mental health facility is breaking away from traditional, sterile hospital environments. Dr. Dan explains why inviting spaces with natural light and calming colors can improve mental health outcomes, particularly for children and teens.
