Taking place as part of the VAUZ afternoon Muss - Musse - Muse
Although attending university is an exciting and vibrant time in a young person’s life, it can be challenging as students struggle with work pressure, independent living and cultural changes. From a sample of university students, prevalence rates of psychological symptoms approximate 30%, however, only 41% of these students seek psychological support. Negative beliefs and stereotypes, i.e. stigma, about mental health support could be a reason for low rates of help seeking. With this marketplace we hope to offer students and staff the opportunity to learn about and explore different methods for improving well-being and reducing academic stress at the UZH.
Join us as we explore the different resources currently available at the UZH to help students and staff have a productive and enjoyable academic experience.
With representatives from various clubs and activities offered at the UZH, coordinated by Dr Clare Killikelly, Alexa McCallum, Juliane Berger, Mariia Merzhvynska, Kaya Chen, Dr. Rita Castro, Elisa Haller, Lea Mozzini.
There will be a selection of booths and information desks offering information on various programmes or services along with short activities, for example, people may complete a small quiz to explore certain public opinions about mental health, they may learn about current research on stigma at the university or participate in a Mindfulness exercise.
