Also, they introduced the Academy's mission, goals, and challenges those modern students face.

Emily MacPherson, representative of the European Students’ Union Executive Committee, also made a presentation at the meeting. Her talk was about the mental health of students in Europe. She reviewed the challenges in this direction across European countries.

The meeting took place in the format of a discussion, which was facilitated by TMA students Mariam Kruashvili and Temiko Inasaridze.

"It was a well-organized event. An important emphasis was placed on the issue of mental health. I think that it is a difficult topic and it is necessary to discuss it. It's good that you students are talking openly about this issue and trying to help each other. Also, it is important that the university has a psychologist service to help students" - Adel Rizvi, Finnish student.
