Architects Benevolent Society runs wellbeing webinar series

ABS ran Draw a Breath, a three-part series of wellbeing webinars for Mental Health Awareness Week in May.

Architects Benevolent Society (ABS) in collaboration with Bright and Well Yoga delivered a three-part mini-series of 30 minute digital wellbeing sessions for the architectural community.

These sessions included an informative wellness talk, yoga and meditation and took place during Mental Health Awareness Week (10th – 16th May) as a free resource for students and professionals in the architecture, landscape architecture and architectural technology professions.

Each session, under the collective title of Draw a Breath, had been specifically crafted to help with key issues such as stress and burnout which are often reported within the architectural community and focused on how nature, this year’s Mental Health Awareness Week’s theme, can be useful when looking to cultivate a great sense of wellbeing, and improve physical and mental health.

Katie Vivian, Operations Manager says: “ABS is constantly striving to support our community in as many ways as we can. We partner with Anxiety UK which means we can provide a range of mental health support to those in need, but this mini-series will offer accessible wellbeing information to all, including those who might not usually seek out mental health support through charities. We hope each session will offer people practical ways to reduce feeling overwhelmed, stressed, and prevent burnout. Prolonged periods of stress can lead to mental health issues such as anxiety or depression.”

The sessions will also provide an opportunity to meet fellow professionals to discuss any key issues arising in more depth. As each webinar is just 30 minutes long, ABS hopes that they will provide an enlightening and positive experience which can be taken as a break over lunch or during busy days.
