In May 2019, connect to the world of mental health design… … make connections, make progress. Make a difference.
Design in Mental Health is the only UK event to focus on the design of mental health facilities with a clear focus on creating calm therapeutic environments for the benefit of patients and staff alike.
Both conference and exhibition are well attended by NHS trusts and private healthcare providers alongside architects and contractors who design and build the facilities that they manage every day.
This provides suppliers with a truly focused audience of senior decision makers turning the event into the ideal platform for the launch of new products and services tailored to these unique environments.
Please make a note of the dates for the next event, 21-22 May 2019. This is to be held at a NEW larger venue, the Ricoh Arena, Coventry.

Good design can help to heal, but transforming mental-health facilities needs collaboration and teamwork. That’s our network’s purpose. Back in 2005, health professionals and designers started to work together. We encouraged service user involvement and soon our network began to grow. Now we’re a positive force for change with membership open to anyone with an interest in our work – from architects to nursing staff, from building contractors to service-users. We offer access to shared ideas and a forum for discussion. We provide access to cutting-edge research and education and encourage stakeholders to become active in creating better healthcare environments.
