Current health protection measures are associated with profound changes in everyday life and social interactions, which present a particular challenge for our mental health and well-being. In order to offer support and help in the current situation, we launch the "WeCare@LMU" initiative, which will take place until the end of the semester.

About the initiative

The current measures to protect our health have caused profound changes in our everyday lives and social existence, posing a particular challenge to our mental health.

To provide help and support for the students and employees at LMU in the current situation, we have put together and launched the “WeCare@LMU” initiative, which will run as of immediately until the end of the lecture period.

The initiative comprises counseling services as well as information and events on various topics relating to wellbeing and dealing with challenges during the pandemic.

The site www.lmu.de/diversity/wecareatlmu contains detailed information about the events as well as the contact details (German).
Numerous faculties, institutions, and points of contact at LMU have taken part, setting an example in these difficult times. We thank them most sincerely.

With all our best wishes for the coming holidays and the new year,

Prof. Dr. Francesca Biagini, Vice President for International Affairs and Diversity and Prof. Dr. Oliver Jahraus, Vice President for Teaching and Studies
