How are your students doing? Refer them to the Caring Universities Mental Health Check!

17 November 2021

At the beginning of November, students received an invitation by e-mail to complete Caring Universities’ Mental Health Check. Caring Universities is part of an international initiative from the World Health Organisation, aiming to gain more knowledge on and improve college students’ mental wellbeing. The Mental Health Check is developed by Harvard University and distributed worldwide.

It is of importance that students fill out the questionnaire to gain more insights on their mental state of mind, but also so Caring Universities can better help those who need it. Please draw attention to the Mental Health Check, also to those who don’t have problems.

Free online programmes for students

Caring Universities offers free evidence-based mental health programmes and personalized coaching. The programmes are aimed at improving mood, reducing stress, tackling procrastination and dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic.

This November a new programme ‘LifeHack’ was launched, aiming to help students with emotional wellbeing, self-worth, social relationships and productivity.
