So what is R Voice : R Voice is a community platform that focuses on the mental health and well-being of researchers. Most importantly, it is a safe space where you can openly talk about the emotions and situations you go through on a daily basis – the stress and anxiety you experience as well as your thoughts and stories. The idea is to facilitate conversations around mental health in academia, to make the voices of researchers heard, and initiate a positive change in the global research culture.

Why R Voice : The R Voice platform is inspired by the findings of CACTUS Foundation’s eye-opening global survey of mental health in academia in which 13,000 researchers participated and shared their thoughts about the academic culture, the pressures they face, and the kind of support they need. The survey findings made it clear that it’s really important to start conversations among researchers and about mental health in academia.
