Workshop: How to stay sane during a doctorate - mental health strategies for you and your surrounding
A doctorate can come with many challenges and to master them good mental health is of high importance. This workshop will provide you fundamental knowledge on mental health, how you can recognize if you or your friends and colleagues are at risk of mental health problems, and how mental health problems can be addressed. The workshop also provides know-how and techniques on becoming more resilient and handling stressful situations and provides time for exchange and self-reflection - doctoral candidates only.
