Free mental health counselling for students

As a student of UAS BFI Vienna you have access to free mental health counselling.
In addition to any university-related issues, you can also use the service to discuss professional or personal problems.

Sound familiar?

  • Some problems just seem impossible to solve. You’ve already tried lots of different things, but the issue won’t go away and is a weight on your mind...
  • The pressure is just too much, and you can’t cope with it anymore. You find it impossible to switch off, thoughts are going around and around in your head, and you’re having trouble sleeping...
  • You’re actually used to figuring things out on your own, and finding a solution for everything, but sometimes it gets too much, and you don’t know what to do anymore...
  • You feel unhappy, nothing seems fun anymore, everything becomes a burden and you only do it out of a sense of obligation...
  • There’s an issue bothering you that you don’t want to or can’t discuss with your friends or family. It would be good to talk it over with someone you’re not so close to...
  • In certain situations you become overwhelmed with a deep sense of anxiety that you don’t understand, and it’s getting in the way of living your life the way you want to...
  • You are faced with a difficult and important decision, and don’t know what to do...
  • ...and these are just a few examples...
