Free Mental Health Workshop Alert! “How to avoid loneliness and find connection as an (international) PhD candidate?”, 21 September @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Workshop description:
Being an international PhD candidate, away from home, is a harsh reality sometimes: loneliness, homesickness, difficulty making friends, cultural differences. Plus, the stress about work and the concerns about the future seemed well-plugged-in in our mind.
Let’s meet and discuss:
* How do we avoid feeling lonely, lost and isolated as an international PhD candidate?
* How do we cope with loneliness, homesickness, nostalgia and with the distance from home, family and friends?
* How do we settle down and integrate in our new environment (city, work, etc.)?
* How do we (re)connect with others and create meaningful relationships with them?
* How do we deal with cultural differences?
Let’s talk about bringing more connection into our new reality!
