Student-led Workshop on Mental Health and Academic Writing

Online Workshop
5:30 - 6:30 pm CET

As the semester nears its end, assignments multiply and in many of us, this always creates a feeling of pressure -- one that we often discuss in small talk, but rarely have in-depth conversations about.

Please join a discussion on 30th April, this coming Thursday, on what mental health means for our academic work, and more specifically, writing. We will try and exchange some thoughts on how much the stress and anxiety of having to do assignments affects the quality of our work, and what we could do (as individuals and as a college) to minimize these effects and make sure to present our ideas in their strongest form, and possibly even feel more comfortable in doing so. The conversation will also entail possible resources to reach out to (both mental-health and writing ones), or how we feel about communicating with faculty about this. 

As the discussion will be open to all BCB students and held in a safe and non-judgemental atmosphere, we encourage everyone to come and share your own experiences and comments. 

The discussion will be co-hosted by the BRAVE Counselors (Jessie, Shreya, Karina), and the Writing Tutors (Mátyás), and we have also invited Ariane Simard, BCB’s Writing Instructor, to give us her perspective.
Date & time: Thursday, April 30th, 2020, from 5:30 to 6:30 pm CET

This event is only open to the students of Bard College Berlin.
