Studying on your own is challenging work that can result in tension, worry, or uncertainty. Balancing your study, work, and private life adds an extra challenge to that. This can lead to studying being perceived as heavy or even unpleasant work, rather than being experienced as fun and educational. Over the course of the past few years, the number of students struggling with mental health has noticeably increased – which is why several new initiatives have been set up at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam: to increase Student Wellbeing and raise awareness for Mental Health, among which the Student Wellbeing Point & Panel.
The Student Wellbeing Point has re-opened with the start of the new Academic Year. Our Point Peers are ready to welcome you again! Will you drop by soon?
