The presentation of eight awards celebrating everything from creativity and teamwork, to service-user engagement and product innovation, an entertaining after-dinner speech by doctor, journalist, and health campaigner, Dr Phil Hammond, and a collection that raised over £1,200 for a teenage mental health charity, were among the highlights of the 2019 Design in Mental Health Awards Dinner.
