Caring Universities


The Caring Universities project is embedded within the World Health Organization (WHO) College Student Mental Health Surveys (WMH-ICS) led by prof. dr. Ronald Kessler (Harvard Medical School).


This international initiative aims at improving our knowledge on college students’ mental wellbeing. Realizing the needs of students will help us in prevention but also in early detection and treatment of mental disorders during college years.

The Mind-Health Check gives insight into the problems students face, so relevant e-health interventions can be developed and offered for free.


From the following universities can take part in Caring Universities: Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, Leiden University, Utrecht University and en Maastricht University. Click here for more information about available programs such as Rel@x.
