Second Open Call for Mind the Mind National and Local Coordinators

October 3, 2021 webmaster 0 Comments

If you missed the first call for National Coordinators (NCs) and Local Coordinators (LCs), we have some great news. We will open the call for Mind the Mind campaign again for some countries for the period of 4th of October until the 11th of October. Do not miss your opportunity to apply!

The “Mind the Mind – to Combat the Stigma of Mental Disorders” campaign is the biggest campaign of the Social Impact Initiative. Its aim is to educate secondary level students, together with the public, about mental health, and mental disorders, while decreasing negative beliefs and the stigma towards individuals affected by mental disorders. The stigma around mental disorders is a widespread phenomenon in Europe, which causes a lot of harm to the well-being of individuals and the society collectively.

EFPSA Social Impact Initiative (SII) is currently looking for National and Local Coordinators for the eighth wave of the “Mind the Mind” campaign.

We are looking for psychology students or graduates who have:

  • Experience with event organising
  • Effective communication
  • Social awareness
  • Social responsibility

By gathering a group of volunteers and implementing a meaningful campaign, YOU can help students understand complex topics such as mental health and mental health problems through the use of videos, role-play, games, and discussions in the workshop. Join the campaign and be one of the many psychology students around Europe who will make a change!
