Outreach Work

In addition to individual counselling and courses, the Student Health Services also conducts preventive work in the form of educational seminars, lectures, and events for students.

Some of the initiatives are recurring every academic year, while others are offered on request from, for example, student associations, study counsellors, or programme managers. The main areas of education are stress management, sustainable studies, alcohol use, performance anxiety, mental health issues, crisis management and information to students that are responsible for welcoming new students about things that are good to have in mind during their planning. The initiatives can, in most cases, be offered in English and also digitally via Zoom.

In order to reach many students, information about the Student Health Services is given at the start of the semester to new students. Staff from the Student Health Services also participate at certain student events, for example, job fairs.

If you are interested in implementing an initiative for a student group in collaboration with the Student Health Services, please send us an inquiry.

If we can provide educational initiatives are governed partly on when the request is made, how long the lecture is going to be, and what theme you have requested. During certain periods of the semester there is an increased demand for counselling services. The likelihood that we can offer you a seminar, for example, increases if we receive it with good notice and can plan accordingly.

For inquiries, contact us at: uppdrag-sh@uu.se. We will discuss the request and respond as soon as possible. Please note that the background information helps us to evaluate whether we can meet your needs or not. Please be sure to answer the following questions in your email:
