The #AnxietyArch Campaign

We're very pleased to announce the launch of our #AnxietyArch campaign, where we will be putting the mental wellbeing of architectural professionals and students at the top of the agenda throughout 2019. We believe that mental health should be treated with equal importance to physical health and that the power of having good mental wellbeing has been undervalued over the years.

Recently, there has been a lot of media coverage on this topic. Individuals, organisations and whole industries are promoting positive mental health, showing a move towards reducing the stigma attached to mental health issues. However, there is a long way to go.

We are able to provide support via a range of services through our partnership with Anxiety UK; including one to one therapy, a dedicated helpline and email services to provide emotional support, self-help materials and annual membership to Anxiety UK.

We hope our Anxiety Arch campaign will enable us to respond to an identified need for people working in architectural professions. Through this campaign, we aim to:

• encourage architectural professionals and students to recognise and talk openly about mental health issues and know where they can access help when they need it most

• raise money to enable ABS to support more people experiencing stress, anxiety and anxiety based depression

• promote good practice in terms of people looking after themselves, their colleagues, their employees and their families.

In order to do this, each month we will be focusing on a different theme. We chose to do this to highlight some of the wide ranging causes or stressors and to help people to find ways to manage these.

Each theme will include personal stories, articles identifying pressure points and sharing tips, advice and coping strategies. Find out what the current theme is here or use the buttons below.
