Virtual Coffee Hour with Hilal Lashuel

It is important now more than ever to do more to normalize the conversation about mental health, break down mental health stigma, and work together to create a supportive culture and working environment that values the well-being of everyone.  

Prof. Hilal Lashuel (EPFL) and his group are planning to launch a new mental health initiative under the theme “All for One and One for All” 

The initiative includes 

  • An online monthly lecture series involving prominent speakers and authors on the topics of mental health and wellness
  • Mini-Symposia. The first will be organized in early December and will focus on tackling mental health in Swiss Universities. Individuals and organizations that have led studies and initiatives to tackle mental health in Swiss Universities will participate. 
  • Establishing an EPFL mental health advocacy group composed of faculty, students, and staff. 

Hilal will discuss their progress and plans with us and explore opportunities for working together.
