Here, we have compiled information for you if you are a student at Chalmers and need various kinds of health-related help and support.

Student Health Service through Feelgood

If you are experiencing health problems that have been caused by your studies or other problems that affect your ability to study, you can receive support from Feelgood Gothenburg City, which is Chalmers’ Student Health Service provider. You should contact them if you need student healthcare for example counselling sessions. If your health problems are not related to your studies, you should contact healthcare providers in Sweden’s healthcare system.

If you are having difficulties determining whether your health problems have been caused by your studies, you can start by contacting Feelgood. An individual assessment will always be carried out to establish whether your health problems has been caused by your studies. You need to be prepared that you will be referred to a different care provider if your health problems are not due to your studies or if your health situation does not affect your studies. In addition, Feelgood may be able to give you some support but may also refer you to a different care provider after that for further support.

Contact a student guidance counsellor if you need help to plan your studies

If you would like help to plan your studies, you should contact the student guidance counsellor for your study programme. Feelgood does not offer help with study guidance.
