Mental Health

Our mental health initiative, spearheaded by WiSE Mental Health Committee chair Tzvia Pinkhasov, uses a variety of projects to address the mental health struggles so common in the often high-stress world of science.

Events hosted by the committee include Real Stories of Science “open mic nights,” where members of the CSHL community hear senior scientists talk openly about their own struggles, then contribute personal stories of struggles in a safe and supportive environment.

The committee also provides resources to help address gender disparities in mental health. At 2018's In-House Educational Retreat, Pinkhasov gave a talk on this topic and you can access her slides here: Pinkhasov slides
