Creating Environments Designed To Heal

The Design in Mental Health Conference and Exhibition offers an opportunity for all those interested in the mental health environment, whether that’s living, working, designing or building, to come together to share knowledge, experience and best practice.

It is the largest gathering of its kind in the UK (and possibly the world?), focusing on the mental health environment . The conference brings together experts by experience, clinicians, estates and facilities teams, designers and other professionals from home and abroad; exploring ideas, debating challenges and providing valuable insights.

The exhibition offers the opportunity to discover and explore new and innovative products as well as the tried and tested, with many new exhibitors joining for 2022.

We’re also delighted to confirm that the Awards ceremony will be back in full swing this year! We’ll recognise and commend people, projects and products across the mental health built environment including two brand new categories: ‘Research and Education’ and ‘Outside Spaces’. This will carry forward the ‘open to all’ format from 2021 with drinks and networking for all who want to join.

We look forward to welcoming you all in June!
