Innovative, Evidence-based Design to Foster Healing

Research shows that a calming, supportive environment plays a critical role in mental health treatment and healing. We designed the Ohana campus to help young people and their families feel welcome, safe, and comfortable, with respect for their privacy and sensitivity to each individual’s health needs.

Exposure to nature can help lower cortisol levels, a measure of stress. Nestled among oak trees in the coastal canyon hills of Monterey, the Ohana campus will blend in with the landscape and reflect its natural surroundings. With inspiring views from every room, abundant natural light, and open spaces with high ceilings, the Ohana campus will offer young people and families hope, curiosity, and possibility — the opposite of “institutional.”

In mental health care settings, research also shows that reducing crowding and noise may lessen stress for patients and staff alike. At Ohana, we designed spaces where our team will provide individualized care for every level of psychiatric and psychological health needs, both residential and outpatient. From private residential rooms to a variety of gathering spaces devoted to music and art, our campus will provide a place where young people can discover possibilities through creative expression. Features include an outdoor amphitheater for classes and music, gardens with immune-boosting plants and vegetables, and outdoor terraces and patios that encourage both group connections and private reflection. The Ohana campus features curated and interactive artwork and murals which have been proven to improve health outcomes, reduce lengths-of-stays, support emotional processing and self-empowerment, and enhance the patient and family experience.
