Mental Health Awareness Days 2023 – Improving your resilience during the early career phases (November 1-3, 2023)

Written by

Mental Health Awareness Days 2023 for doctoral and postdoctoral researchers – Improving your resilience during the early career phases

are a joint initiative of Leipzig University, Friedrich Schiller University Jena, Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg, yDiv/iDiv and HIGRADE/UFZ. Organized by its graduate academies and occupational health management units, we want to support you as researchers at our universities and research institutions.


Our main aim is to inform and sensibilize you on how to cope with demanding or stressful situations during your research. Ideally, the presented topics will help you to smoothen stressful situations and even prevent too heavy mental load. During these three days, you will find various online offers (most of them in English), e.g. relaxation exercises in the mornings as well as, a number of short workshops on topics such as resilience, concentration, positive psychology, the risk of addictive behavior and mindfulness. In addition, there will be information on how to become a mental health first aider and you will be introduced to the method of peer coaching.

You can find the detailed program at the website of the Mental Health Awareness Days 2023.
