Design for Mental Health
Programme Lead: Anna Mankee Williams
How can design improve mental health, its image and wellbeing?
Mental health is increasingly of concern across the population, and it has been shown to have a disproportionate affect on the old and the young. This programme will develop innovative, design-led approaches to tackle mental health issues across a range of ages, drawing on research that addresses the use of technology, language, visual design and interaction/communication design. It seeks to help overturn stigma, to develop applications and online support and find new ways of articulating cognate experience, to help carers and minimise the effects of loss and isolation.
We welcome applications for PhD or MPhil that align with the Design for Mental Health programme.
