The COST Action on Researcher Mental Health (ReMO) invites you to the launch of the Researcher Mental Health Manifesto on Monday 11th October from 14:00-15:00 CET.
Recent studies show a high prevalence of mental health issues among researchers. The ReMO COST Action involves a growing network of 240 stakeholders, who work together to identify which practices and actions are effective at creating research environments that foster mental health and well-being, reduce mental health stigma, and empower researchers when it comes to well-being in their workplace. In this Researcher Mental Health Manifesto, we present the ReMO COST Action’s call to assess how the mental health and well-being of researchers can best be nourished and sustained through actions and initiatives at the policy, institutional, community and individual levels.
The Manifesto Launch is aimed at an audience of stakeholders that includes institutional leadership, policy makers, academics of all career stages, mental health practitioners, research career advisors and doctoral school directors.
The Researcher Mental Health Manifesto Launch will feature:
- ReMO Action Chair Dr. Gabor Kismihók TIB, Germany
- ReMO Vice Chair Dr. Stéphanie Gauttier Grenoble Ecole de Management, France
- Working Group 1 Chair Dr. Janet Metcalfe Vitae, UK
- Working Group 2 Chair Dr. Stefan Mol University of Amsterdam, Netherlands
- Working Group 3 Chair Dr. Darragh McCashin Dublin City University, Ireland.

Event reportReMO COST Action Researcher Mental Health launched the Researcher Mental Health and Well-being Manifesto on 11 October 2021 that calls for stakeholders in the research ecosystem to develop policies to monitor, improve, and maintain well-being and mental health in research environments. The Manifesto is available on Zenodo: https://zenodo.org/record/5559806 Recent studies show a high prevalence of mental health issues among researchers. The ReMO COST Action involves a growing network of 240 stakeholders, who work together to identify which practices and actions are effective at creating research environments that foster mental health and well-being, reduce mental health stigma, and empower researchers when it comes to well-being in their workplace. In this Researcher Mental Health Manifesto, the ReMO COST Action calls for an assessment of how the mental health and well-being of researchers can best be nourished and sustained through actions and initiatives at the policy, institutional, community and individual levels. The Researcher Mental Health and Well-being Manifesto was a virtual meeting held within the ReMO COST Action CA19117. We had 211 attendees with backgrounds ranging from research funding agencies, European-wide representative organisations, research funding support, researcher career development, doctoral school directors and researchers. 145 of the 211 attendees were women. Our COST Action network officially includes 34 European countries but that number was certainly exceeded by the attendees at our Launch including many participants from outside Europe. Our Manifesto is based on a series of events to consult our networkabout their priorities for developing policies that monitor, improve, and maintain mental health in the research environment and how our work will achieve real-world impact. A petition in support of the Manifesto can be signed at: https://chng.it/GnmHpzzg Our launch featured contributions from our Action Chair, Dr. Gábor Kismihók of the TIB Leibniz Information Centre for Science & Technology (Hannover, Germany), Dr Janet Metcalfe of Vitae, Dr. Stefan Mol of the University of Amsterdam Business School, Dr. Darragh McCashin of Dublin City University, Dr. Stéphanie Gauttier of the École de Management Grenoble. In subsequent discussions various Stakeholders responded to the Manifesto including Dr. Gemma Modinos, the Chair of the Young Academy of Europe, Dr Alexander Hasgall, the Head of the Council for Doctoral Education of the European Universities Association and Dr. Branwen Hide, the UK National Contact Point for the Marie Sklodowska Curie Actions. Videos from the Launch are available on our YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCk2Bbj2eVm-AixJHOU_8jqQ The general atmosphere was positive that at last a broad group of researchers, research managers and career advisors were presenting a coherent platform for giving feedback to research institutions, research funders and research policy makers on researcher mental health and well-being. We have 3 and a half years to deliver on that promise within our COST Action and a very strong number of allies throughout our network. The Manifesto (https://zenodo.org/record/5559806) was followed by a call for signing a petition with the same goal of the Manifesto. Anybody who wants to see that researchers’ voice be heard and help improve mental health and well-being in academia may sign it. If you are a stakeholder in academia at any career stage and agree with: 1) starting a dialogue about academic mental health, 2) collecting evidence, 3) taking decisions based on academic mental health evidence, 4) sharing best practices, 5) starting systematic research on researcher mental wellbeing, and 6) the importance of personalized trainings and career counseling, then PLEASE SIGN OUR PETITION: https://chng.it/PYZzspQ7LJ
