DiMH Conference, Exhibition & Awards Dinners


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.


Keynote Speakers

Rt Hon Norman Lamb MP is announced as a keynote speaker at Design in Mental Health Exhibition 2019. On 22 May 2019, day 2 of the exhibition Mr Lamb will deliver a presentation at 11.30am.

Norman Lamb has been the Liberal Democrat MP for North Norfolk since 2001. After serving as a minister in the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, he was appointed Minister of State for Care and Support at the Department of Health in September 2012 and served in this position until the end of the Coalition Government in May 2015.  As Health Minister, Norman worked to reform the care system and led the drive to integrate health and social care, with a greater focus on preventing ill health. He also challenged the NHS to ensure that mental health was treated with the same priority as physical health, including the introduction of access and waiting standards in mental health for the first time. He was the Liberal Democrat Health spokesperson between 2015 and 2017, and was elected Chair of the Science & Technology Select Committee in July 2017.
