In this episode of the Sausage of Science we explore issues surrounding mental health in academia with Dr. Rebecca Lester. Dr. Lester is interested in how people understand and experience existential distress, as well as the institutions and practices that arise to address this distress. Here she shares her insights for ways mentors can better support the well-being of graduate students.
