August 7, 2020 secretary 0 Comments

The Call for National and Local Coordinators for the 7th wave of Mind the Mind Campaign is now open!

 

 

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

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

National Coordinators are a change the SII is implementing with the 7th wave. They will coordinate Local Coordinators in their country and help them run the 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
  •        a good level of English (for National Coordinators)

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 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 sixth wave of the campaign, 27 European countries and more than 30 000 students and adults reached through our workshops are evident in 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 seventh wave will have an even greater impact on European society.

To achieve our goal, we are looking for National and Local Coordinators to help us facilitate the campaign across Europe.

To apply, have a look at the Role Description for National Coordinators here, for Local Coordinators here and fill in the online application available here. The call is open until the 21st of August 2020, 23:59 CEST.
