Digital book: Managing Your Mental Health During Your PhD – A Survival Guide

We would like to draw your attention to a book made available by the SUB:

Content: The book goes beyond typical mental health discussions (where the focus for improving mental health is placed on PhD students to become “more resilient”) and explores some of the often unspoken environmental factors that can impact mental health. These include the PhD student-supervisor relationship, the pressure to publish, and deep systemic problems in academia, such as racism, bullying and harassment.

The book is available at the SUB. Within the campus network, individual chapters can be downloaded directly. To download from outside the campus network or to download the entire book, you must authenticate yourself with your library card number and the corresponding password.

The book is also linked through this website where you can find more information when life seems complicated.
