Are you an International Student? How has the Pandemic affected your physical and mental wellbeing?
The COVID-19 Pandemic has not only restricted the world physically, but it has also put a toll on our mental health. With the closure of schools, classes have moved to online platforms and students have had to learn how to assimilate to the demands of online studies. Although this has enabled students to keep up with schoolwork, it has deprived students of the physical attachment and feelings of togetherness with schoolmates and teachers.
To address this, a team of third-year students from Diaconia University of Applied Sciences have created a weekly online safe space where you as a student can come, interact, and receive practical advice from professionals to promote your mental and physical wellbeing. Do not miss the first session next week on the 21st Oct at 16:00 - 17:00, where we will look at what to do to move towards a meaningful life physically and mentally.

The sessions are organized in collaboration with Think Africa ry, a non-profit organization focused on the integration and wellbeing of immigrants.
