At TUM4Mind it is all about your mental health during your studies. A conscious approach to one's own psyche and mental health is a cornerstone for a high-performance and successful course of study and a sustainable lifestyle.
Current events in the summer semester 2021
The topic of mental health is relevant for all students, especially in times of corna. Therefore we offer courses and discussion forums throughout the semester in addition to the Awareness Week in May.
The virtual formats will take place via Zoom. You will find the link for registration in the respective event description. Please note: Registration is only possible for TUM Bachelor and Master students with the TUM Login ID (ab12cde) and works best via the Confluence app or the desktop version.

Mindfulness is the ability to focus on the present moment. Most of the time our thoughts are already at tomorrow’s meeting or still at yesterday’s to-do list. Using three different “quick” meditaiton techniques we will practice maintaining the concentration and relaxation needed for the upcoming exams.
After a short introduction into the three MBSR mindfulness methods we will practice the short mediation exercises. The exercises can be done sitting or lying down. Afterwards there is time to discuss the experience and to ask questions (optional)
