Abstract: 

In a 2002 study, 14% of new intakes appeared to have mental disorders, while in 2015 it was found that over 38% of new intakes exhibit signs of mental disorders. How might an institution be designed to acutely improve the mental well being of a specifically displaced group of individuals while building lasting relationships within a larger community? Through an analysis of existing research literature and scientific studies on caring for mental illness and healing spaces, while finding the problems within the existing judicial framework, this thesis aims to explore, contextualize, and present an architectural project that can serve as a case study for therapeutic design. Conversely, physical health is recognized as considerably influencing mental health and well-being. While discussing mental health, the physical, psychological, and social factors all need to be considered.
