The 10th October marks World Mental Health Day and this year, the theme is to make mental health and wellbeing for all a global priority.
Every person’s wellbeing is affected by a number of factors. One of the most important factors – which can be overlooked – is the surrounding environment. In a post-pandemic world where we have all become more intimately acquainted with our interiors, it is now even more important that we think outside the box and examine how our environments affect our mental health.
Southernsbroadstock have long championed the benefits of accessibility and neurodiverse design when creating professional interiors. No two people are the same. For neurodivergent individuals, the noise and clamour of many environments can be overwhelming. Creating quiet retreats and alternative workspaces can make a tremendous difference to their health and wellbeing.
Many organisations are already reaping the benefits of hybrid working styles and accessible design. This World Mental Health Day, it is important to note that mental health issues exist across every aspect of society, from our communities to our workplaces.
We can all do more to prevent ill-mental health in society. Addressing environmental issues is a powerful way we can make a difference.
