Fora Form spread awareness to World Mental Health Day

Last year was the first year Fora Form marked World Mental Health Day on October 10th. This year we repeat the campaign to help spread awareness regarding an important issue that we care about.

Mental health is about creating a safe framework for good conversations. Good conversations often take place in a sofa or chair. Fora Form's vision as Norway's largest producer of meeting places is to facilitate good meetings.

This year's theme is about "Life during and after a pandemic". Whilst some have experienced home office as enriching their lives, others miss the interaction and team-spirit unity of a workplace.

Experiencing unity is important in order to be able to work towards common goals and invest oneself in relationships. We will therefore continue our efforts in focusing on the good meetings.

Feeling safe and secure, being able to trust other team-members is the key to good processes and mental health.

What is psychological safety and how can design help?

"We humans have been exposed to an enormous change in the last year and a half. We do not have equal opportunities to deal with this change. It is therefore important that we who furnish offices and meeting places are consciously responsible for creating unity and taking care of everyone around us. It is our differences that are our greatest advantage, these we must cultivate and take care of. The fact that someone does not feel safe and united after the pandemic can cause your organization to miss important insights into future processes. That is why it is important to focus on this day." Says General Manager of Thomas Haram.

Where people no longer meet.

Where the chairs are empty.

Where all you can hear is the
sound of what once was.

There we will meet again.

There we will fill the void.

There we will see each other.

Wherever people meet.
