Student well-being has plummeted in recent years. Not only because of corona but also far before that. That's why I thought it was time to do my part and fight for better student well-being!

Due to my own difficulties during corona, I would like to give something back to the people around me. I want to make the mental health more discussable and make it more of the daily conversation

The Chat


  Many students struggle with performance pressure, loneliness and social stress, but find it difficult to talk about this. My goal is to make sure it doesn't  is seen as weird when you seek help or talk about it.
