About us

Here we introduce you to who is behind the SGM BeTaBalance and how many different groups of people are involved. Together we can address the topic of student health in an all-encompassing way!

The Student Health Management BeTaBalance, a joint project of Tübingen University Sports Center in cooperation with the Institute for Sports Science, is dedicated to holistic health promotion in the university setting. The project is supported by the Techniker Krankenkasse. The primary goal of SGM BeTaBalance is the demand-oriented planning and implementation of health-promoting offers for students at the University of Tübingen to increase their bio-psycho-social health.

We regularly offer selected student groups the opportunity to be trained as MHFA first responders.
So far, students from the following student bodies have participated: International Literatures, Medicine and Medical Technology, Psychology, Mathemiatics, Sinology, Linguistics, History, NWT, Physical Education, Scandinavian Studies, Chemistry, Ethnology.

Network & Social Event

At the beginning of the year, a network meeting with all trained MHFA first responders of the University of Tübingen takes place in the form of a social event. In addition to the social exchange, ideas for the campaign for Mental Health Awareness Month will be collected together.

Mental Health Awareness Month

The month of May has been chosen by the non-profit organization Mental Health America as "Mental Health Awareness Month" to counteract stigmatization of mental illness. We, too, want to promote public awareness of mental health during May and launch campaigns about it together with MHFA first responders. The first campaign is planned for 2023!

Training is provided via the seminar "1NE101 Designing a new learning and working culture: future-oriented, health-promoting and sustainable", which is offered in the Transdisciplinary Course Program on a semester basis. Sports students from the 3rd semester or students with an exercise instructor C license have the opportunity to be active as exercise instructor:in in the context of company and student health management at the University of Tübingen after completing this course.
