Meeting the targets of United Nations SDG 3 includes that mental health and wellbeing of all humans should be promoted. For us as academics and students the connection between mental health and academic achievement is of major importance. Therefore, topics related to student motivation, optimism and self-confidence can be crucial in facilitating successful learning processes. Being aware of the importance of academic achievement for the future career can be of great importance for keeping up student motivation. Also, a motivating learning environment including sound peer-relationships may help in facilitating successful learning experiences. However, issues such as anxiety related to taking exams may limit student’s capability to meet goals of academic achievement. In our four-day workshop we would like to explore the connection between mental health and learning outcomes from multiple perspectives. We would like to invite you to learn about and discuss the issues described above and more, develop ideas with us which will then be presented and discussed on the final conference day. The workshop is open for students of all disciplines and especially relevant for students of education, humanities, sociology, psychology and related disciplines.
