We’re speaking at the Design in Mental Health conference 2022

Mental health is a pretty important part of life. Even though we are a building consultants company, we still like to think about mental health occasionally and how we can meaningfully engage in discourse on the topic with our peers.

The Design in Mental Health 2022 conference is something that we are a big fan of, and this year, we have been asked to speak again on our topics of expertise.

Design in Mental Health 2022 Coventry Conference

What is the Design in Mental Health conference all about?

The conference is all about the design and operation of mental health facilities. The way you design a mental health facility can make a substantial difference in how it performs.

Any building space that you design needs to be suitable for the purpose, but also should create the ideal environment for somebody with mental health struggles to feel safe and relaxed in.

The conference is where some of the biggest names in the industry come and share their thoughts about design in mental health facilities. They talk about ideas and ways that the right kind of design work can shape a mental health facility into something welcoming, something reassuring and something safe.

Design in Mental Health 2022

You are probably interested to know what we’re going to be talking about. We will give you some answers in just a second, but we also want to avoid spoilers, as the actual talk will be deep insight.

Blu Building Consultants Director John Plum is going to be doing the honours and he’ll be giving a talk on Improving the Patient Experience with a Standardised Design for Safety Suites.

The need for a well-designed safety suite is obvious to anybody who has worked in the mental health industry, but we wanted to take it a step further and essentially redesign the safe space. It’s something that we are very proud of and have spent a lot of time working out the best way to create environments, with a standardised design, that meet a range of service needs, and is going to be suitable for both patients and staff.

Design in Mental Health 2022

Our talk will illustrate things like how one standardised design can work in many situations, how we can learn from the feedback offered by staff and patients regarding the facilities, and the impact that these new facilities will have on patient outcomes.

We are so excited to be able to share our knowledge at the event because we are passionate about this idea. We recognise just how important it can be for people to be able to have one constant, reliable, effective space and it’s been a passion project of ours for some time now.
