‘Unpublished’ is a podcast about mental well-being at work, created by Trustpunt, the confidential counselors' service at Ghent University. The podcast focuses on topics related to academia and the research community, but there’s a wealth of information in the series that will be inspiring whatever your walk of life.
Each episode tackles a sensitive and taboo topic about mental well-being in the workplace. They include phenomena such as imposter feelings, cultural differences and loneliness. For each of these topics, our host, David Chan, talks with an expert in the field who gives fascinating insights based on their research and professional experience. Alongside our main guests, you’ll hear clips of individuals in academia sharing their own personal stories.
With this podcast, Trustpunt hopes to create a greater openness and to help create a safe, comfortable space in which to talk about mental well-being in a positive way.
