Design for Mental Health and Wellbeing in China
Project Lead: Dr Bryan Clark
Led by Dr Bryan Clark, and in partnership with Anhui and Jiangnan Universities in China, this design-based project seeks to develop and evaluate approaches in the reduction of the stigma of mental health.
The project uses service design principles and co-discovery with user groups; exploring new process models and collaborative approach. This is achieved through collaboration between designers, students and client partners, geared to address critical issues facing societal need in China and the UK together. The project seeks solutions created in the light of an increasingly complex world and a rapidly changing technological, social and political landscape in alignment with China’s 13th Five Year plan to drive better education, health and wellbeing for all citizens.
This project is related to the Design for Health and Care research programme.
