Impulse lectures, mindful breaks, exchange

Mental health is becoming increasingly important in our world of work, not at least as a result of the Corona pandemic. For this reason, the TUM Institute for LifeLong Learning is offering a broad program for the University’s employees on World Mental Health Day on October 10 - especially for its own employees, but also with selected lectures for the public. Registrations are now open.

Also at the university as a place of learning and working, mental health and well-being play an important role. That is why TUM organizes a year-round program of lectures, workshops, and individual offerings that are easy to integrate into everyday life.

On World Mental Health Day on October 10, TUM is also raising awareness of this topic - with a day of action organized by the TUM Institute for LifeLong Learning. Which research-based approaches can increase mental health and well-being? What should managers actually know about this topic? These and other questions will be answered during the day in a total of 20 virtual short lectures, workshops, mindful breaks and a joint exchange - in German and English.

Selected lectures open to the public

9.00 - 10.00 am: Welcome & introductory impulses by Prof. Claudia Peus, Executive Vice President for Talent Management and Diversity, and Founding Director of the TUM Institute for LifeLong Learning, and Dr. Franziska Emmerling, head of the Neurophysiological Leadership Lab Registration

Worldwide campaign

The topic of mental health is becoming increasingly important in the modern working world. There are many reasons for this, such as increasing stress factors in the workplace or recent crises like the Corona pandemic, which require greater awareness among superiors as well as in the private environment of those who are affected.

On World Mental Health Day, initiated by the World Federation for Mental Health (WFMH) and the World Health Organization (WHO), various activities worldwide are intended to draw attention to the importance of mental health and raise awareness of mental illness. On this day, people working in mental healthcare have the opportunity to talk about their work and related challenges and to invite people to act in solidarity with each other.
