311 Lina Madaj Mental Health PG surveyDear APECS members,

It is increasingly clear that being an ECR in academia is stressful and challenging, especially with all the current uncertainties due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The objective of the newly formed APECS “Mental Health Resources” project group is to create a database compiling online information, tests, tips, contacts, etc. from reputable sources on the issue of mental health (MH) and academia. APECS members and the wider community will be able to access, and contribute further to this resource through the website.

In order to assess how we can best meet the APECS community’s needs, wishes and concerns with regards to mental health, we have created a survey and require your feedback (ca. 3 minutes):


The survey information is anonymous, and will be used for project development in 2021 and/or beyond.  All questions are optional.

We appreciate your input by filling the survey until 1st April 2021.

Warm regards,

The APECS Mental Health Resources Project Group
