UM initiatives to improve your well-being

We understand that these times are difficult for students. We also want to let you know that you are not alone!

If you are feeling down, reach out to one of the initiatives below that UM offers to improve your well-being.

On this website, you can find an overview of initiatives promoting well-being at UM. Furthermore, we would like to point out the following links for support:

  • Student adviser: The student adviser offers information, advice and guidance with respect to all study-related matters. If you have any questions, complaints, or problems, the student adviser is the person you should turn to first within the faculty, you can book an appointment online.
  • Resources Wellbeing: Tips and links per topic, such as stress and building resilience, organising your (academic) life in general and in times of online-education.
  • Caring Universities: Caring Universities has developed online programmes to improve mental health. The programmes are aimed, for example, at improving mood and reducing stress. The programmes are available in English and in Dutch.
  • Peer Support: Peer support pays attention to the well-being of all students. With each other and for each other. A peer supporter is trained and guided to offer support in an informal, yet well-informed, manner.
  • Psychological support: Lectures, workshops, trainings, or individual appointments are offered by UM psychologists.
  • InnBetween: Open student community that comes together for eating, projects on sustainability, science, and social responsibility.
  • Gezondeboel: An easy online platform with online courses (for example on loneliness and mindfulness). Most courses are in Dutch, but there are also some English (and other languages) programmes.
  • @Ease: an initiative powered by a team of trained volunteers. You can walk-in, on-site (inner city of Maastricht) and it’s free and anonymous.
  • Wellbeing Movement: The UM Well-being movement organises a lot of initiatives, for example the Well-being Wednesdays, Well-being Week, Well-being Evenings, and UM walks.
  • MyMaastricht: This website offers a lot of useful information on many different topics. One of them is “Health” with more information on the Dutch healthcare system.
