Architecture can be particularly susceptible to workplace pressures and stresses - and these in turn can affect employees’ mental health. This short guide covers the key issues and is filled with practical tips and suggestions and links for more information.
The Architects’ Mental Wellbeing Forum
The Architects’ Mental Wellbeing Forum is a group founded in late 2017 to try to improve mental health within architecture. It comprises architectural practices that are renowned for their forward-thinking approaches to staff welfare, representatives from RIBA and the Architects’ Benevolent Society, and current architectural students.
As well as meeting regularly to share knowledge and learn from members’ own experience, they research other ways to support architects’ mental health in the workplace.
