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.
We offer a number of chaging workshops during the semester with different focal areas within the greater field of "mental health". Current topics and dates can be found in the Qualifications Portal.External link
You can also request workshops tailored to a specific target group within the staff.
Managers play an important role when it comes to the mental health of their employees. We would like to raise awareness in managers regarding the topic of mental health and their influence on it and support them should cases of mental stress and strain occur within the team. Aside from individual advisory services, we also provide various workshops on mental health.
