Try to be compassionate to yourself and to others

Editor's Note: The Leibniz Network conducted a series of webinars to help researchers manage their mental health during the COVID-19 pandemic. This video was originally published as part of this series and has been republished here with permission. The original video can be accessed here.

In this sixth part of the Leibniz Network webinar series on mental health, each of the speakers shares useful advice. Dr. Desiree Dickerson (Academic Mental Health & Well-Being Consultant) urges us to show ourselves compassion as we navigate the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic; Dr. Nicola Byrom (Lecturer in Psychology at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology, and Neurosciences at King’s College London) and Dr. Hendrik Huthoff (Head of Education at Jena School for Microbial Communication and mental health advocate) talk about how you can address practical problems like dealing with a difficult supervisor or coming to terms with your academic contract ending during the pandemic.
