DESIGN Changes Lives


Our growing network is open to anyone with an interest in the design of mental health environments. Our members cut across disciplines – architects, designers, lived experience experts, estates planners, clinicians.

Together we can make a difference to mental health design and the impact it has on therapeutic outcomes. 

Through design, we can help change lives.

“DIMHN gives me the opportunity to learn, share, challenge and develop my understanding of the constraints and opportunities presented by Mental Health design. Uniquely, DIMHN has created an ecosystem of clinicians, designers, service users, manufacturers and constructors, and a platform to allow parallel and contemporaneous thinking in the development of healthier, people-centric approaches to be shared for the benefit of all.”
