CAMHS Enhanced Group Areas and Bedrooms

The Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) department will be contained within the ground floor of the new hospital, with access to several external courtyards.

Design team Projects Office have been appointed to enhance the interior design of the communal areas, we well as to create opportunities for patients to personalise their bedrooms during their stay.

The team have undertaken lengthy engagement with patients, families and staff, facilitated by artist James Leadbitter. One key theme that emerged as a common response to the question ‘What does good mental health feel like?’ was the environment of the seaside and coast. Projects Office are currently working to develop a design which centres around this theme.
