LSM Mentoring

Sometimes doctoral students suffer from psychological distress. Reasons behind these vary from one person to another. It could be due to a sudden cultural change, language barrier, homesickness, lack of work-life balance or any other situation. Since the LSM student council have become aware of the need to offer our support to those who need it, as a first point of contact, we have two excellent volunteers available, so that you are not alone in your time of need.

What we can offer?

At the moment, there are 2 mentors in our program. They have both received mentoring certifications. If you are needing to reachout please do not hesitate to contact them by clicking on their names below and getting in touch to talk about your concerns. All information and conversations will be kept anonymous. Remember, we are also doctoral candidates and therefore we might share similar experiences and can understand your situation(s).

LMU also offers mentoring programs. Doctoral students who want to join our mentoring team must participate first in the Peer-to-Peer-Mentoring Program and obtain relevant experience and certification. Moreover, doctoral students can seek further counseling through events organized by Intercultural Counseling Center in LMU.
