MeWell Commmuity Zürich

Improve mental wellbeing in academia

Abstract

The Mental Wellbeing Community of Zurich (MeWell) is a young student organization with the focus on providing both professional and community-focused activities around raising awareness of mental wellbeing and fighting metal health stigma at the universities in Zurich.

Description

For this purpose, MeWell offers a range of engaging activities focused on fighting mental health stigma in academia. Our events cover two main areas:

1. Mental health awareness

Our mental health awareness program consists of educational activities which inform and teach our community about various aspects of mental health such as: promoting mental wellbeing, recognizing the signs and symptoms of poor mental health, and talks covering current research.

2. Community outreach social events

Our community outreach events offer an opportunity for our community to directly interact with our team. This serves two main purposes:

A) As a recruitment and team development program

B) As a direct program to engage our community and potentially help redirect people to professional support organizations in the case of poor mental health.
