University of Debrecen, Center for Mental Health and Equal Opportunities
Providing help for students…

Dear Students,
During the university years there can be several situations when we feel we can hardly keep our heads above water: we feel there is no progress in our studies, we have problems in our private life or conflicts with our roommates or other people we know. In such situations we do not need a doctor or therapist in all cases but we believe it might be a good idea to consult an external specialist and discuss the situation. Highly-qualified and experienced professionals are available for students at the Center for Mental Health and Equal Opportunities in an accessible building which is a five-minute walk from the main building of the university (Poroszlay Street 97).

Mental Health Consultation Services

There are several situations in life that pose real challenges and we might feel we cannot cope with the difficulties alone.

You can use our services if you

  • experience problems with studying,
  • have your doubts about the career you have picked,
  • feel the usual tools you have used to deal with difficulties do not work anymore,
  • are often tense and nervous,
  • are in a bad temper, feel depressed and you don’t feel like doing anything,
  • are anxious in certain situations,
  • feel it is too much and you cannot cope with the tasks ahead of you,
  • feel it is hard to fit in and cannot find your place,
  • cannot find the right tone with your friends and family,
  • often experience problems with your partner,
  • cannot meet the study requirements,
  • are procrastinating your tasks (e.g. exams, studying, thesis writing, getting a job)
  • lost someone important and you cannot cope with it,
  • feel it is difficult to make decisions in life,
  • need mental, psychological support.

If you have experienced any of those mentioned above or similar feelings, visit us or send an email to .

The service is available free of charge with total discretion for students and staff of the University of Debrecen.
