UX Crunch at Home: Empathy & Mental Health in UX

Oct 27, 2021 · Amsterdam, Netherlands

In alignment with World Mental Health Day, we'd like to use this 'UX Crunch at Home' to look at how great UX can help those suffering with their mental health and how the pressures of the industry can impact the UXer themselves.

It's clear that those within the UX field have a special interest in people and will often utilise their personal empathetic skills within their practice as means of improving their research or product. By consistently putting yourself in your user's shoes, you're bound to make improvements to your work- but how can this impact a designer's own thoughts and feelings? And how can a designer incorporate empathy into their design process whilst remaining unbiased? It's really important to incorporate thoughtfulness into your practice, but constantly second-guessing your work can be detrimental to what you produce and your health.

Mental health is something that we've become so much more understanding and appreciative of within the last few years or so, and with this newfound knowledge and acceptance has surfaced thousands of apps that offer support and stabilisation to anyone who feels they may need it.
For this event, we'll be joined by some fantastic thought leaders who'll help us unpack what these holistic apps offer and whether or not they're a groundbreaking staple of modernity or just a part of a current trend. We'll also be looking at some of the services that have been designed and used for those struggling with specific mental health issues and how technology and innovation can be used to assist with the care of those people.
