“Mental Well-being on Campus” - Workshop for international students
Mental Well-being on Campus – The interactive virtual workshop for international students will be held on Thursday, 1/12/2022 from 6:00pm to 8:00pm. The workshop is a cooperative event of the student health management of the German Sport University and student health management of the University of Cologne, as well as Irrsinnig Menschlich e.V. (Madly Human).
The goal of the workshop is to raise students' awareness of mental health issues, teach coping strategies, reduce fears and prejudices, and present support and counseling options.
What to expect:
- Getting to know the warning signs of mental illness and crises.
- Shedding some light on fears and prejudices concerning mental illness.
- Finding out who and what can help, what makes you strong and what you need to master a crisis.
You will get to know students who have mastered crises, live successful and fulfilling lives and who want to share their experiences with you. Let us learn from each other.
Studying well. Managing crisis. Living a satisfying life. Can I have it all? Of course!
Thousands of students have already attended our forum. Now we look forward to having you with us!
About Irrsinnig Menschlich e.V. (Madly Human):
Mental illnesses often already have their onset throughout teenage years. However, too many years pass until those affected seek help, mainly because of their fear of being stigmatized. Through our prevention work in schools, in higher education and in the workplace, we aim on reducing this gap. We support young people in recognizing signs and need for professional help earlier, to open up and to accept help.
