Dragonfly Mental Health. What we have achieved in one year?

A report summarizing Dragonfly Mental Health activities after it was established last year at I, Scientist conference. We will tell you who we are, what we did and what are our further plans in cultivating excellent mental health in academics worldwide.

Dr. During September 2019, the I, Scientist Conference on gender, career paths and networking took place in Berlin, Germany. The Dragonfly Mental Health organization was born during the Mental Health Activism session, aiming to cultivate excellent Mental Health among academics worldwide. One year later we would like to celebrate our first birthday and tell you what we have grown into. We are now a globally operating non-profit organization, formed by academics for academics. With the help of nearly 90 volunteers we have developed a program for academic and research institutions that includes lectures, seminars and workshops for employees of all levels; obtained non-profit organization status; run online social hours for academics three times a week (Dragonfly cafe), launched a website, and achieved many more things which we all owe to I, Scientist conference 2019.
