Student Health Service in Visby
What The Student Health Service can help you with
Our counsellors and health pedagogues can help you with questions connected to life as a student. You can, for example:
- get advice from our counsellors
- get advice from our health pedagogues
- receive shorter individual counselling if your situation affects your studies
- talk about your lifestyle habits.
When you need to turn to other healthcare providers
In some cases, you should turn to other care providers than the Student Health Service. This applies, for example, if:
- you have a physical illness or injuries
- you know that you need to see a doctor to get a prescription or a doctor's certificate
- you want to be assessed for ADHD, autism or dyslexia
- you have more severe or persistent mental health problems, want to be assessed for potential psychotherapy, or want long-term therapy.
In such cases, you should contact a health centre (vårdcentral), or call 1177 (from a foreign phone number dial +46 711 11 77 00).
If you are unsure where to turn for help, you are welcome to book a telephone counselling appointment for advice.
Make an appointment for telephone counselling
Every Monday through Thursday before 10:00 we post open telephone counselling appointments for that day. If there are no available times, new times will be added the next day.
On Mondays, between 13:00–14:00, you can also drop in to our office to make an appointment.
Currently, it is possible to get a first time counselling appointment within 1–2 weeks.
If you are a doctoral student at Uppsala University, regardless of funding, you should turn to the occupational health services for support and counselling. They offer some counselling sessions free of charge before the head of department has to be informed. For more information and to book an appointment:
If your problems are not work-related, contact a health centre, where you can get help with physical and mental problems, including contact with a counsellor or psychologist.
