Building Environments That Shape The Future

“The Design in Mental Health Conference and Exhibition offers an opportunity for all those interested in the mental health environment, whether designing, using or visiting to come together to share knowledge, experience and best practice.  It is the largest gathering focusing on the mental health environment of its kind in the UK. The conference brings together experts by experience, clinicians, designers and other professionals from home and abroad, explores ideas, debates challenges and gives something for everyone. The exhibition offers the opportunity to see and examine new and innovative products as well as the tried and tested.
