Design in Mental Health

Synopsis

I’ve been designing hospitals for the past 25 years and with the current state of mental health globally, now more than ever has it become evident how our immediate environment impacts on our thoughts & actions. Whilst recently working closely with neuro diverse patients who all were suffering with eating disorders, this observation played out with remarkable results. Initially these patients within a day care facility demonstrated violent reactions within the facility they were forced to occupy. It was only in changing the dynamic of their immediate environment that aided the patient’s wellbeing, with positive outcomes. The lessons learnt are essential for all healthcare facilities to implement now.
