This webinar is exclusive for SfN members. Please log in or join or renew your membership below for access.
Poor mental health among academics and researchers has long been a problematic and pervasive issue but, until recently, it has largely been ignored or even denied. Recent research (Evans 2018, Woolston 2019) and the increased pressure of the COVID19 pandemic, however, have rendered mental health in academia an urgent topic. Dragonfly Mental Health, a nonprofit dedicated to cultivating excellent mental health among academics worldwide, will lead a webinar that aims to destigmatize mental health struggles among SfN members, discuss the prevalence and manifestation of various mental illnesses among neuroscientists, and start the conversation about how we as a community can better support ourselves and each other.
