Why the Let's Smile Again project?
Admitting that you struggle with mental health issues continues to be a hard topic for a lot of people. A lot of students also struggle but often they don’t dare to openly talk about it. The majority of them feel like they are all alone in their struggle and have a hard time searching for help. With Let’s Smile Again we want to in invest in breaking the stigma surrounding mental health problems and making it easier for people to talk about their struggles. This year we will organise a lecture about “Resilience”, this lecture counts as a studium generale.
During an evening lecture various individuals will speak from their own expertise to discuss the mental (un)well-being of students: students with personal experiences, psychologists, psychiatrists, etc. All views will be addressed.
Where and when?
Everyone is welcome on November 23 at 19h30 at the UZ Gent.
