Mental Health Working Group
The Mental Health Working Group aims to help destigmatize mental health issues and strengthen the mental health community in PostdocNet through open, positive, and inclusive dialogue. We strive to improve PostdocNet members' ability to recognize signs of mental health problems in themselves and their peers, increase resilience, and initiate discussion about how to reduce stress in the workplace.
This year, our working group's activities focus on organizing and implementing Mental Health Awareness Week (MHAW), which will take place via ZOOM from Monday, October 10, World Mental Health Day, through Friday, October 14, 2022, in close collaboration with the Mental Health Collective (MHC), Administrative Headquarters, PhDNet, local MPIs, and other national and international mental health advocacy groups and organizations.
We are currently finalizing the MHAW program. In August, the MHAW website should be up and running on the PostdocNet homepage.
Please contact us at any time if you would like to join our Working Group. We greatly welcome any contribution!
