Design in Mental Health

Synopsis

This presentation will cover how a property was designed for an individual with a Learning Disability who had been sectioned under section 3 of the Mental Health Act. The aim of the project was to enable them to be discharged from an out of county hospital safely back to the community using a person-centred approach.

The presentation focuses on who the client is; his wants, life goals and what is important to him. It will then show the different ways the client was given choices and was included in the design of the property as well as through the entire build process, discussing how the designs developed along the way to meet the needs of the individual. The presentation will also consider how his involvement led to a positive experience for the client and his family, as well ensuring the design of the property will support him appropriately long term.
