Conference sessions

Creating Healing Environments though Interior Design. Farnham Road Hospital: A Case Study by Mark Carter, PM Devereux & Sara Saunders, Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust. A holistic approach to design which considers internal spaces as an integral part of the architecture. Looking at how form, volume, light, colour texture and integration of artwork can create healing environments, choice of settings for the individual and assist wayfinding and orientation. When service users’ needs and aspirations are placed at the

heart of the design process, the results are spaces that are unique and individual, welcoming and supportive and residents with a strong sense of pride and ownership. Jane Willis, director of arts consultants Willis Newson, will look at the process, outcomes and impact of engaging service users in the design of two mental health units; Thames Lodge Medium Secure Unit for West London Mental Health Trust and St Andrew’s Healthcare’s FitzRoy House, the largest residential mental health facility for adolescents within Europe. In both projects, the arts programme proved a potent vehicle

for engaging service users, resulting in a vision, themes and naming strategies, interior design, artwork and imagery shaped by service users. Shaping environments for the future – A look at Guernsey’s

Mental Health Service by Andrew Street, IBI Group. Atmospheres of the Ward: examining service-user

experiences of space in a medium secure forensic psychiatry unit by Prof. Paula Reavey, London South Bank University.
