R U OK? Day 2020

R U OK? Day is a national day of action when we acknowledge that every day is the day to ask, “Are you OK?” if someone in your world is struggling with life’s ups and downs.

As students and recent graduates we understand that life, study and work can sometimes be challenging to juggle and this can take a toll on our mental health. We want to take the time to connect with our SONA community and open up a conversation between practitioners, graduates, and students about mental health and wellbeing.

Naomi Stead will lead our discussions, a Professor and Head of Department in Architecture at Monash University. Her most recent ARC project, beginning in the second half of 2020, explores the work-related wellbeing of architects and architecture students, under the title ‘Architectural Work Cultures: professional identity, education and wellbeing.’
