1 in 3 architecture students in the UK have been treated for mental health issues (Architect’s Journal) Due to the creative and often uncertain nature of their employment, architects can be vulnerable to mental ill health. Employees are expected to work on projects, usually within strict financial and time constraints. Rising debt, increasing workloads and conflict of personalities can leave architects ever more at risk.

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) Half Day is a 4-hour introductory mental health awareness course, approved by the Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH). On completion of this training, candidates are certified as ‘Mental Health Aware’.
