Welcome to our connecting activities!

Meet your fellow students, individually or in groups. Let's talk!

Meet-Up in group!

Students talk together about what is on their minds. Buddies listen to how you are really doing. You can talk a lot or stay quiet. A nice atmosphere where you can be yourself and where you belong. Yes, because we care!

Check our calendar!

Are you looking for a shoulder to lean on, someone to help you get started or just a nice chat. We're here for you!

You can make a difference! In this training we focus on mental well-being and how we as students can support and strengthen each other. More specific: How do you pick up signals? How do you start a talk? How do you refer as well as possible? And how do you take care of yourself?

When? Tuesday, October 17 - 6:30pm - Bruges & Kortrijk
