Architects’ Mental Wellbeing Toolkit Launch

The Architects Benevolent Society is proud to fund the Architects' Mental Wellbeing Forum’s work creating the ‘Mental Wellbeing Toolkit’. 

In an attempt to address mental wellbeing in the profession, the Forum produced a Toolkit for Practices, providing guidance for architects and employers on how to promote mental wellbeing within the workplace.

On 20th June 2019, the Toolkit was officially launched at Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios. Alongside providing the opportunity to bring people together to champion mental health we also heard from award winning poet LionHeart and four speakers who talked openly and honestly about mental health:

Katie Buckingham, Founder and Director, Altruist Enterprises
Priya Aiyer, Architect, MACE Group
Jane Duncan, OBE, President of Architects Benevolent Society, PP RIBA
John Assael, Chairman and Co-founder, Assael Architecture Limited

The event raised awareness, provided advice and continued a dialogue about mental health within the profession. Discussed how architecture practices are addressing mental health issues and asked what is next – what practices and organisations can do for their staff in the workplace to provide support.

Please follow the link below to access the online link to the Toolkit. We hope it will be a useful resource for practices and individuals as well as a catalyst for conversations about mental wellbeing in the built environment.
