PhD candidates and Postdocs encounter a wide range of demands that often lead to high stress levels during the PhD and later on. How do you manage to stay mentally healthy during your doctorate and afterwards? And what can you do to increase your own well-being and life satisfaction? In the workshop, we look at risk and protective factors for mental health.
