Applications open: one-day post-GSA workshop on Positive Mental Health in the Geosciences

published Aug 23, 2023 12:00am

Oct 19, 2023 - Oct 19, 2023

Geoscientists often grapple with stress, anxiety, and isolation. Now, exacerbated by structural racism and the pandemic, we need a collective effort to address mental well-being. Join us to explore the challenges faced by geoscientists and learn about practical solutions implemented by universities, companies, and colleagues. Through engaging discussions and interactive sessions, we will assess the current state of mental health support, define the components of a healthy geoscience community, and identify actionable steps for a community that prioritizes mental health and supports people with all identities. Anyone interested in mental health in the geosciences is welcome to apply. We will prioritize individuals from historically excluded, minoritized backgrounds. A stipend and partial travel support are available.
