27 Oct Tackling the “Meaning Crisis”: Mental Chaos in University Students
This talk was organized by Blu Matter Project, a University of Toronto student group dedicated to student mental health. The organizers of this event sent me the following statement:
“Many university students’ core beliefs and ideas are challenged by the courses they take, with no meaningful and beneficial replacements being proposed. This creates a devastating problem for many students. They experience a crisis of meaning, and no longer know or can’t tell what they should pursue in life. This existential undermining adds to the stress students experience while attempting to maintain a good GPA and manage demanding courses. All of this can produce depression, and encourage a nihilistic outlook.”
