Counselling

The Student Health Service is here to help you with issues associated to life as a student. Contact us if you have questions regarding lifestyle, mental health and stress management. We have a telephone service where we give support over the phone and we also offer individual councelling. You are welcome to attend our courses and groups or make yourself comfortable in our Light Rooom. All services are free of charge.

This is how it works

If you want an appointment for individual councelling you must first call our telephone councelling service. Our councellors/psychologists will ask questions about what is troubling you, give you advice and set up an appointment for you, if the assessment is that the Student Health Service is the best place for you to get help. If not, you will be guided to the right place. If you are unsure where to turn, call and we will help you.

Sometimes you need to seek help from other healthcare providers, for example:

  • If you have severe anxiety, suffer from severe depression or have suicidal thoughts you need more immediate help. For acute psychiatric help, call or visit the Psychiatric Emergency Clinic in Uppsala. The reception and telephone is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Telephone: 018-611 25 00. Address: Akademiska sjukhuset, ingång 12.
  • If you have more severe or long lasting problems, please turn to your local health centre (vårdcentral) or seek psychiatric care.
  • If you are sick, have an injury or suffer from medical problems, please turn to your local health centre or the closest emergency ward. You can call 1177 for advice.
