Students supporting other students
– this is what peer-to-peer advisory services are all about. This project is aimed at students who feel that their university experience is affected by their mental health issues or conditions. The project is offered by HAW students, and some of the team have personal experience with mental health conditions themselves.
What we offer you:
• Advisory services and assistance
Advisory services in relation to issues such as planning courses for the semester, studying strategies, structuring the course of studies, disability accommodations, financing, discussions and exchanges of experiences, the students’ own handling of their condition with respect to fellow students and lecturers / professors and many other services. It goes without saying that all discussions will be treated as strictly confidential.
Assistance is an extension of the advisory services offered by the University of Applied Sciences. Students requiring additional assistance during or after a period of illness or for any other reason may satisfy such demand through assistance by other students (such as assistance with planning courses for a semester, assistance in difficult situations, when catching up on missed material, accompanying them to appointments with subject advisors or with the BAföG office etc.)
• Discussion evenings
This group offer aims at connecting affected students with each other beyond their respective departments. On the third Thursday of every month, a protected space to talk is provided, moderated by students. This is a great opportunity to talk about matters such as “Studying despite/with mental health issues”. No registration is required for participation.
