Florida National University Has A New Psychology Club Helmed By Students
By: Florida National University
The student-run organization is dedicated to engaging all undergraduate and graduate students at Florida National University. The club hosts general body meetings the second week of every month.
Students, professors, and visiting faculty host discussions on topics used in their career and research. Members of the club have a chance to strengthen their leadership and communication skills by holding spirited conversations, acquiring leadership positions, organizing events, and volunteering.
Millennials are often referred to as the "anxious generation" since they were the first to grow up with the constant overflow of the Internet and social media. The Internet can make life better, but it can also make life complicated, as Millennials often compare their personal and professional achievements to everyone else's. This can result in low self-esteem and insecurity. There's pressure to constantly be 'on.' or to look and sound perfect like you have it all together.
For many, it's a relief to be able to talk about being anxious and depressed and what that looks like from a psychological perspective. World Mental Health week was recently in October and saw many conversations started on social media and within social groups alike.
Science-Backed Conversations on Mental Health
The most important part of the mission of the FNU Psychology Club is to allows its members to meet other students and faculty who are also interested in the study of psychology. The interaction between students and faculty helps students interested in conducting research join laboratories and apply to graduate school.
Psychology is the study of mind and behavior. Research in psychology seeks to understand and explain how people think, act and feel. Psychologists strive to learn about the many factors that can impact thought and behavior, ranging from biological influences to social pressures. This club was formed to help other students and the community by applying what has been learned to improve the world around us.
