Mental health and mindfulness

According to reports published by various health insurance companies (e.g. AOK Absenteeism Report 2019), the number of employees who are unable to work due to mental health problems—and the associated length of absence—has been on the rise throughout society for several years.

That’s why we have also launched various preventive measures to promote the mental health of employees and managers at the University of Jena.
