Mental Health Counseling

When studying becomes a burden, the Mental Health Counseling Services at the University of Potsdam can help.

Students can lose their mental balance too: The pressure in the Bachelor’s and Master’s programs increases because of frequent tests and exams, financing your studies becomes increasingly difficult due to the lack of time, and job prospects are often meager.
This is why the University of Potsdam offers psychological counseling services. In our offices you can find someone to talk to about a variety of concerns affecting university students, such as:

  • work- and learning difficulties,
  • motivation problems,
  • anxiety before exams or when speaking in front of an audience,
  • writer’s block,
  • social anxiety

as well as difficulties and worries that have an indirect impact on your academic performance and happiness, such as:

  • relationship problems,
  • conflicts in a partnership or within the family,
  • problems with self-worth,
  • personal crises.

To make an appointment please send us an e-mail or stop by in person during the drop-in office hours. We will schedule a personal consultation that suits your individual needs – normally outside the drop-in office hours. During your first appointment we will talk about different options and possibilities and figure out together how to proceed. We can then set up additional individual consultations or we can refer you to a therapist or a suitable group. The consultation is confidential and free of charge.
