A New Model for Wellbeing
Over the past five years, the number of Google searches for ‘mental wellbeing’ has steadily climbed. Unsurprisingly, the last months showed distinct peaks in the upward trend. Forced isolation gave some individuals the space and time to reflect on self-improvement, on how to make positive changes for the future. For others, it was precisely the lack of those things – space and time – that necessitated urgent emotional support. So how can we make mental wellness spaces more accessible and inclusive? The March/April issue of Frame argues for a more fine-grained distribution of wellbeing-inducing artefacts and explores how mental wellness is shaping new places, products and portals.
