The Call for Local Coordinators for the 6th wave of Mind the Mind Campaign is now open!

Make a significant change in society by combating the stigma of mental disorders! Become a Local Coordinator in your city/country and organize the “Mind the Mind” campaign!

The EFPSA Social Impact Initiative (SII) is currently looking for Local Coordinators for the sixth wave of our “Mind the Mind – to Combat the Stigma of Mental Disorders” campaign.

We are looking for psychology students or graduates who have:

      •        experience with event/project organising and managing
      •        effective communication skills
      •        social awareness
      •        social responsibility

By gathering a group of volunteers and implementing a meaningful campaign, YOU could help decrease stigma and the social exclusion of people with mental disorders by raising awareness about the presence and effects of stigma. Moreover, you can increase the likelihood that people with mental disorders will seek psychological help. Join the campaign and be one of the many psychology students around Europe who will make a change!

Within EFPSA, Social Impact refers to an initiative aiming to make use of psychological knowledge in order to make a significant positive impact on society. With the Mind the Mind campaign, we aim to raise awareness, educate and combat stereotypes surrounding mental health problems.

After concluding the fifth wave of the campaign, 27 European countries and more than 30 000 students and adults reached through our workshops are the evidence of the campaign’s success. With each consecutive wave, the materials used are reviewed and updated based on the feedback and suggestions from everyone who took part in the campaign. Thus the sixth wave will have an even greater impact on European society.

In order to achieve our goal, we are looking for Local Coordinators to help us facilitate the campaign all across Europe.

In order to apply, have a look at the Role Description here and fill in the online application available here. The call is open until the 19th of August 2019, 23:59 CEST.
