Doing a PhD or a postdoc can be very demanding and stressful at times. It is therefore very important to keep your mental fitness at a high level. And good to know that if you are facing problems at work, that there are several ways of getting support that will enable you to solve the problem or make it more manageable.

If you are a PhD candidate and feel that you would like to talk about your PhD trajectory with somebody outside your own work environment, please do not hesitate to contact the confidential PhD advisor for EPS, Susan Urbanus, or find local support at your university in the list in below.

If you are a postdoc and are experiencing a problem at work, please see the information about the local support at your university in the list below.

If you are a supervisor of a PhD candidate and are experiencing problems in the supervision of your PhD candidate, please do not hesitate to contact the confidential PhD advisor for EPS, Susan Urbanus, or find local support at your university in the list below.

If you have doubts about whether the issue is big enough to involve another person, please remember that it is easier to solve an issue when it is still small and that all information will be treated confidentially
