All Ears would like to offer you a listening ear if you run into problems. In some situations, however, a single conversation with a listening ear is not enough. If you get stuck, have psychological complaints or maybe you think about suicide, we are happy to help you find the help you need. Below you will find an overview of various agencies that might be able to help you further.
Do you have no serious psychological complaints, but one meeting at All Ears does not help you enough? Then you can make a follow-up appointment with one of our student workers. Click here for more information; for an appointment you can contact us here.
If you have study-related complaints, a study advisor from your faculty may be able to help you. Click here for an overview of the study advisors per faculty.
If you get stuck and have psychological complaints that you cannot resolve yourself, a psychologist can help you. If you are studying at the University of Groningen, you can contact the Student Service Center (SSC) for short-term help, up to a maximum of 5 conversations. Examples are study-related problems, stress complaints, anxiety, or gloominess. If during the intake it appears that you are not able to register for short-term help, you will be referred via the GP to long-term or more specialized help outside the SSC.

Be aware that the university psychologists of the RUG are only available during office hours and are mainly focused on help with study-related problems. The SSC cannot provide the right help for acute, serious psychological problems. The doctor can refer you to the GGZ. Even if you are not studying at the RUG and are looking for a psychologist, the doctor is the one who can refer you to a psychologist. In an emergency, contact your doctor. If you are concerned that you will harm yourself, call 113 or 0800-0113, or go to https://www.113.nl/ for help with suicide prevention. You can also contact 113 if you know someone who is (possibly) suicidal.
