NH UXPA August Meeting – Inclusive UX in an Era of Anxiety
August 24 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
As part of the continued focus on inclusive, accessible design, where should mental health fit in?
As the design industry continues to focus on accessibility and inclusivity, it’s more important than ever to consider mental health as a piece of the puzzle. With the skyrocketing rates of anxiety and depression throughout the course of the COVID-19 pandemic—plus many more of us struggling with daily stressors and mood swings that may lead us to irrational negative thinking—how often are we asking ourselves, “How will someone with anxiety experience our product/service/feature? How can we make that better?”
Join this discussion to:
+ Gain empathy via personal accounts of navigating technology with anxiety
+ Understand examples of digital experiences with inconspicuous mental and emotional impact
+ Learn best practices to bring back to your own designs
Cara’s recent article, published on Medium in May 2021, about the importance of considering mental health in your designs clearly touched a nerve with both the design community and those facing struggles with mental health—and in many cases for those of us who identify with both camps.
