The SupportStudents are here for you! You can contact a SupportStudent if you need someone to talk to or if you feel lonely. Your matter can be about anything from studies, routines and wellness, to difficulties finding friends or anything else that feels tough. The SupportStudents can help you through their own experiences or just by being there and listening. Below you can find information about the SupportStudents, and also suggestions on topics that you can talk about with them. However, you can also talk about whatever else is on your mind. You should never be alone with your own thoughts, therefore it is always a low threshold to contact a SupportStudent!
A SupportStudent is a voluntary Student Union member, who has participated in a Mental Health First Aid 2 course. They are people with different backgrounds and qualities. You can contact anyone of the SupportStudents directly (by mail, WhatsApp or in person), or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, through which we then match you with one of the SupportStudents. Whatever you tell a SupportStudent is confidential, and your matter won’t be discussed with anyone else without your permission. SupportStudents are not professionals, but we can provide support and can, if needed, refer to a helping instance.
