Welfare & Counseling
Student counsellors offer, confidential and non-judgmental support to students who are experiencing personal and/or academic concerns. Most of the medical undergraduates are going through different pressures and difficulties associated with academic work as well as due to peer pressure, isolation and separation from home etc. Students use counselling for all kinds of different reasons and you don’t need to be in a crisis to meet counsellors. Their services can help the students to find ways forward, make decisions, gain new perspectives, discover solutions and come to terms with and manage challenging life events. At present the counselling services have a close collaboration with external resources for those who need professional or clinical interventions.
