CONFIDENTIAL ADVISER 
If you are or were in an unpleasant situation or are experiencing problems, you may want to talk to someone confidential and external about it. This may be because it is a sensitive or personal topic that is not easy to talk about. This includes study-related problems, problems within an association, discrimination, transgressive behaviour or simply personal problems. The UT provides confidential advisors that you can contact on the following website:

RUNNING GROUP THERAPY

This group is started by Erik Kemp. He created this group to help people that are living through some hard moments in their life. They are now running twice a week, with a varying bunch of people. These moments are, however, not all about running but more about helping each other and talking or listening. If you are interested in joining you can simply sent him an email. 

HELP WITH WORRIES ABOUT COVID (Dutch)​​​​​​​
Had je je studententijd anders voorgesteld? Mis je het contact met je verenigingsgenootjes? En een lekker feestje of losgaan op een festival? Het is heel lastig dat je niet het studentenleven kan leiden dat je zou willen. Op het Steunpunt Coronazorgen vind je informatie en tips om hiermee om te gaan. Met onderwerpen als stress, eenzaamheid, geldproblemen en tips voor jongeren bieden we je een helpende hand. Als je daar last van hebt, weet dan dat je niet de enige bent. Lees maar eens het ervaringsverhaal van Noor, die op kamers woonde en nu weer bij haar ouders is ingetrokken uit eenzaamheid. ARQ Nationaal Psychotrauma Centrum en het RIVM hebben deze website opgezet.
