Short course 2

Co-design & Prototyping

Join Chris Vanstone, TACSI’s Chief Innovation Officer and partners on how to design philosophies of care, peer roles and service experiences in the mental health space.

In this short course run over two 90 minute sessions, we will provide rich case studies that support people to understand the ‘how’ of bringing ideas and solutions to life within co-design. 

This is about shining a light on the steps and processes people can embark on in order to come up with prototypes that can be tested in the real world.
