If you are passionate about creating environments designed to heal, and improving solution-led design, then attending Design in Mental Health 2022 is your opportunity to network with like-minded mental health professionals.

Open to all those involved in designing, delivering, maintaining, and working in therapeutic environments, the event, held at the Coventry Building Society Arena, will be held from 8-9 June.

It will include a two-stream conference which is accompanied by a major exhibition and the annual awards ceremony on the evening of 8 June.

Over the two days, delegates will be able to engage with experts by experience, clinicians, architects and contractors, review ideas, engage in round table discussions, explore challenges, and discover innovative products.

Something for everyone

One of this year’s keynote speakers is Sarah Hughes, chief executive of the Centre for Mental Health, who will be discussing ‘Designing a Mental Health System for Equality’.

The conference has something for everyone.

This year’s programme will provide a variety of interesting and informative presentations, including sessions covering designing facilities for young people; patient safety; Design in Mental Health facilities; sustainability and achieving net zero; safety and psychologically-informed environments; a person-centred approach; and design, estates, facilities and equipment learning. 

With presentations by clinicians, architects, service users, and facilities professionals, every angle of the design and operation of mental healthcare facilities will be covered, including an international perspective on patient safety, with a viewpoint from the USA to compare and contrast practices in the UK. 

The exhibition this year comprises over 60 companies showcasing everything from doors, windows, flooring, and furniture, to modular buildings, washrooms, interiors, and art.

Meeting the challenge

So, whether you are creating new environments, refurbishing existing facilities, investigating new technologies, or undertaking ongoing maintenance, Design in Mental Health can deliver contacts, ideas, expertise, and products.

And discussing your present-day challenges with exhibitors will help you to create environments that are not only safe, but support the wellbeing and recovery journey of all mental health patients in your care.

This year the annual awards ceremony takes place at the end of Day 1 after the exhibition closes and is complimentary for all to attend.

The occasion will begin with a networking drinks reception and canapes, with a magician and saxophonist to entertain visitors as they network.

The evening will be a celebration of achievement and innovation, with trophies awarded to the most-deserving companies and individuals in the mental health community.
