[Cancelled] Supporting PhD candidate mental health and well-being – A useful toolbox

A digital informaton event for Postdocs, Juniorprofessors and Professors


“I’m an academic, not a therapist.”

As a supervisor, you are in a special relationship with your PhD candidates. Some of you may have the sense that your people are struggling and you simply not know how to approach them or the subject. In this interactive session you’ll develop a toolbox for navigating your PhD candidates’ mental health and well-being.

We will explore:

  • How to ask the right questions.

  • Why number of interactions matters.

  • Having a genuine open-door policy.

  • The role of belonging, self-worth & capability and how to foster it.

  • Caring for yourself first.
