Being is a holistic health and wellness initiative that aims to support and network designers from all industries through small and intimate group discussions about mental health, career development, and community building. We believe that as designers, our creativity and passion are strongest when our own well-being and mental health are maintained. Currently, there are limited resources and organizations that specifically address this growing issue and that cater to the needs of our growing audiences. Because of this, we as a community have not allowed ourselves to dispel the growing pains of isolation, self-doubt, and anxiety that’s a common bi-product of chasing this career. Support brings awareness; we are here to support.
