Work-related mental wellbeing in architecture

In contrast to many other professions, the architecture profession knows relatively little about the mental wellbeing of its practitioners. And yet, in a sector as complex and paradoxical as this, in an age in which mental illness is so common, an examination of the relationship between work and wellbeing appears crucial. Just as we have begun to address gender equity issues in architecture in Australia, it is time to get the facts straight on mental health so that we can act accordingly.
