logo-uva-health-week1322x1280UvA Health Week: “I am fine” – Heart to heart on issues of mental health

What does it really mean to take care of yourself? Eating healthy? Getting enough exercise? It does, but it also means taking care of your mental health. Being a student can be stressful. We are confronted with pressure, deadlines, and expectations from others and ourselves. Too much stress can result in mental health issues such as anxiety or depression. As widespread as these issues are, there is still stigma surrounding this topic.

That is why Amsterdam United is organizing a mental health workshop during the UvA Health Week. We would like to come together and break the stigma surrounding mental health issues. Through performances, poetry and storytelling, some of us will share our experiences with depression, anxiety and other mental issues. Everyone in invited to take part in an informal panel discussion with the performers. It is time for an open-hearted conversation. Let’s talk health!
