Welcome to the website of the DESTRESS study!

On this website you will find more information about the study, why it is important that you should participate, what kind of programs we provide and what you can expect as a participant.

The DESTRESS (DEcrease STress through RESilience training for Students) study is designed to reduce chronic stress and burnout among students.

All students at the Erasmus University Medical Centre Rotterdam are eligible to participate in the study, whether they are currently stressed or not. Our aim is to collect information about perceived stress, now and in the future, and to evaluate interventions that may help. In the future we plan to expand the study to also include students nationally and healthcare professionals.

Are you a student at Erasmus University Medical Centre Rotterdam? Then you can participate in the study! Whether you feel stressed or not, you can contribute by taking part. Go through this website to learn more. Group-based interventions will be in English or Dutch or both, as appropriate for the participants in that group.
