Are You Ready to Change Lives and Narratives?

We are celebrating a decade of impact: This year, we are bursting with pride as we mark the 10th anniversary of the “Mind the Mind – to Combat the Stigma of Mental Health” campaign by EFPSA’s Social Impact Initiative. 

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 society as a whole.

10 Years of Changing Narratives: For a decade, the campaign has delved deep into classrooms and communities all over Europe, touching the hearts and minds of secondary students and the broader public with its powerful message.

Now, we invite YOU to join us. At the heart of the campaign are truly the people, and everything achieved has been thanks to the dedicated National and Local Coordinators, along with their passionate volunteers who conduct the workshops.
To be specific: The call for National and Local Coordinators for the 10th wave of the “Mind the Mind – to Combat the Stigma of Mental Disorders” is now open!

As a National Coordinator, you’ll guide the campaign in your country, an experience that will foster growth not just as a leader, but as an advocate for change. As a Local Coordinator, your role encompasses gathering and supporting a group of volunteers, bringing the workshops to life in your city or region.

By gathering a group of volunteers and implementing a meaningful and 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 workshops. Join the campaign and be one of the many psychology students around Europe who are making a change!

So if you are a psychology student or graduate who has:

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

Do not hesitate to apply! We would be thrilled to have you on board this transformative journey. Let us continue to “Mind the Mind” and sculpt a world where acceptance is the norm, and understanding is the universal language. Let’s change the narrative.💙
