Psychological and Spiritual Counselling

Zoom Call 2 Personen

Whether in their private lives or in their studies, students today face new challenges and have to make decisions almost every day. If you feel a growing need for personal advice, here are a few places you can turn to:


Mental Well-being on Campus

What is it about?

In this interactive virtual workshop on Mental Health  you will get to know the warning signs of mental illness and crises. You will find out who and what can help and what makes you strong and what you need to master a crisis. You can discuss how you can create an atmosphere in your university where it goes without saying that mental health is openly spoken about and solutions are looked for together.

You will get to know students who have mastered crises, live successful and fulfilling lives and who want to share their experiences with you. Let us learn from each other.

Spiritual Care of the Protestant Student Church

If you just need someone to talk to...
you will find an open ear with Pastor Regine Paschmann. No matter what is bothering you - your studies, which are getting too much for you, love, which is not working out, the separation from home, which is simply exhausting, or a question about God, which also arises again and again - come by! Together we will search for your way through the thicket.

Ways to psychotherapy

A psychotherapy is a service that gets taken over by the statutory health insurance. You normally can go directly to a doctor's consultation at a psychotherapist. More informationen here..
