Ministry will tackle students’ mental problems


Terug naar het Nederlands


The coronation measures in higher education have been scrapped, but that has not eliminated the mental problems of students. Education Minister Dijkgraaf is working on tackling them, he writes (in Dutch). According to him, the Ministries of Education and Health are working on an ‘integrated approach’ to student welfare. The focus is not only on counselling in the event of symptoms, but also on prevention. Attention is paid to the underlying causes of ‘stress and performance pressure experienced by students’, as well as to physical health. (HOP, JvE)
