mental well being

Mental well-being

  • Do you feel stressed out? You have a lot of pressure, don’t worry we have all been there, studying medicine can be very stressful and students cope in different ways, but sometimes it is so stressful that it leads to actual problems like anxiety, depression or even test phobia (an irrational fear of exams).

  But don’t worry we are here to help if you feel that you have a psychological problem that is interfering with your life give us a visit at the student support office and we promise that your data and your problems will be kept secret and confidential.

  • We also offer lectures about stress management throughout the year.
