We'd love to hear about your vision, and talk about how we can help you bring it to life by uniting the skills of our teams.

We assemble project teams across the disciplines of Architecture, Interior Design, Landscape Architecture and Heritage, to create life-changing environments across Education, Community, Secure Spaces and Wellness spaces.

NBRS were given the opportunity yesterday via Ignite ABP Network to be a part of Melbourne Knowledge Week, and speak to the topic of 'Design for Mental Health: Understanding a changing model of Trauma Informed Care'.

Led by NBRS Wellness Sector Lead, Ian Gibson and joined by Johnstaff Associate Director, Tracey Ronald and Health Advisory Consultant, Nataliya Daniel the three spoke to the importance of understand Trauma Informed Care Principles and how we can use Co-Design to inform shape new strategies around the design and delivery of services, and how we can ultimately provide the best level of care for Mental Health patients, and giving them the best sense of normality while living in a facility.

We were pleased to also be able to share research findings from the NBRS 2021 Envision Program: 'eMerge: A Trauma Informed Mental Health Hub for Young People'. Please find a digital copy of our research here: https://issuu.com/nbrsarchitec...

The discussion of Mental Health and how we can design spaces to cater for those in need is as important as ever. If you wish to get in touch to learn more, please contact us: https://nbrs.com.au/people/ian...
