OpenUp mental well-being support

Mental well-being support for PhD candidates through OpenUp

The health, safety and mental wellbeing of PhD candidates is important for Erasmus MC Graduate School. 

In order to ensure that all PhD candidates have direct access to any mental health support they may require, Erasmus MC Graduate School entered a collaboration with OpenUp. 

OpenUp provides quick and approachable access to mental health courses, health checks, interviews and 1-on-1 consults with a psychologist via phone, online chat and video.

It’s a preventative measure aimed at tackling mental health issues in their early stages. Are you struggling with a major or minor mental health problem? Is it something personal or work-related? Are you looking for what you can do yourself? You can discuss whatever is bothering you with the OpenUp psychologists.
