Mental Health

Mental Health Brochure

The brochure is intended to introduce students to the topic, provide testimonials on various mental illnesses or problems (social phobia, test anxiety, fatigue syndrome, etc.), and present important points of contact. Topics covered include: stress management while studying, social and cultural backgrounds, and mental health in the context of other forms of discrimination for example LGBTIQ+/queer community, physical disabilities, or racism/anti-Semitism.

We offer you the comprehensive brochure to download.
