The Design In Mental Health Network (DIMHN) brings people who use and work in mental health services together with those who commission and design them so that environments become more responsive to their end-users’ needs. We encourage stakeholders to work together towards higher quality services which promote healing and well being, greater efficiency and cost effectiveness. As well as addressing the broader questions in mental health design today we encourage and take inspiration from exemplar projects where people are championing collaborative ways of working. DIMHN is a social enterprise and works with universities, contractors, healthcare providers, user groups and individuals.Visit Website
