Our community

The Mental Wellbeing Community is a non-profit organization (Verein). Its members are friends, colleagues, and activists trying to bring about positive change in how academia interacts with mental health. We want to achieve this by focusing on 3 projects:

Increase the awareness and importance

We continually strive to host events and initiatives for the academic community. From relaxing events to guest talks to panel discussions with field experts, we want to engage our local academic community.

Provide a strong peer-support community

We are creating an ever-growing community of friends in which we promote a safe space for people to feel welcome and to discuss topics that may be on our minds. The goal is to have frequent, healthy interactions between peers.

Become the on-campus hub for all information

We provide information about helpful events and resources to those in need and to those who are generally interested. Our partnership with local organizations facilitates the transfer of this information.

Want to find out more? Most information can be found in the annual report and bylaws on your right. If you still have questions, always feel free to drop us a message through this contact form.


Join us!

We invite you to join all (or some) of our events. These consist of online round tables, online talks and maybe soon also live events. You can find our calendar further below or directly visit our Eventbrite page.

Monthly topics

Most of our events revolve around a certain topic that changes every month. You can also find posts about the topic of the month on our social media channels. Be sure to check them out!
