Psychosocial well-being for employees (including doctoral students)

As faculty and colleagues, we care about your well-being. It is important that everyone feels good at work and enjoys coming to the office. Are you having a difficult time? Do you suffer from stress or a bore-out? Are you faced with a lack of motivation, conflict, transgressive behaviour, ....? Or do you see a colleague struggling with these issues? Talk about it.

Make sure to get it off your chest!

Psychosocial well-being for students

As faculty and as a university, we care about the well-being of our students. Student life is exciting and challenging; but it's not all sunshine and roses. Unfortunately, psychosocial well-being issues may arise. Stress, fear of failure, discrimination, transgressive behaviour ... these are examples of issues that need to be addressed. For any issue - no matter how small or 'harmless' it may seem - there is someone you can turn to.

Make sure to get it off your chest!
