Talking about mental well-being and building resilience is incredibly important. In collaboration with Hii, X facilitates low-threshold workshops for students. The workshop format combines positive psychology and creative facilitation as a tool to help fuel the conversation.

Hii is a student-run organization facilitating workshops at X bi-weekly, with different topics each week. Read more about the topics and what dates each workshop will be held below. More info about Hii can be found on their website.

Schedule & enrolment

Teacher

Melissa Kramer

Melissa Kramer currently does a Master's in Strategic Product Design. She has done design and creative studies since 2012 and is experienced in creative facilitation. With lots of own experience in the connection between physical and mental health, she likes to create a space for other to tell their stories and have meaningful conversations.

Neva Linn Rustad

Neva is studying Design for Interaction at TU Delft and gained experience in organizing and facilitating workshops for different purposes over the past years. Neva: “Making a comfortable and open environment where others feel free to explore our mental well-being is important for me.” As a Hii facilitator, Neva shows empathy and asks the right question at the right time.

Victoria Toellner

Victoria first became more actively involved in mental health and wellbeing during her bachelor studies in England where she volunteered as a mentor and facilitator in peer support groups. A whole pandemic later, this valuable experience inspired her to create something similar here at TU Delft.

For her, these workshops are all about exploration and learning. She’s curious about people and their stories and really believes that we can help each other to help ourselves. The activities in the workshops are carefully designed to guide students through the workshop whilst still leaving room for creativity and your own interpretation!
