Stockholm Student Health Services

If you are a student at Stockholm University, KTH or a number of associated colleges in Stockholm (see below), you are welcome to contact us for support during your study time.

We offer individual counselling, groups, workshops and other activities that aim to support your well-being and realise your full academic and personal potential during your time as a student. You may have problems related to stress, worries of different kinds or just feel low and drained of energy. Sometimes you may have a longstanding concern, be encountering new difficulties or challenges, or simply have a sense that something isn´t right. 

Common problems associated with studies are procrastinating, speech anxiety, difficulties coping with stress and finding a balance between study and leisure time. It is always a good idea to check out our workshops, groups and lectures which are available to help you build skills and handle different kinds of problems that you may face as a student.
All visits and activities are free of charge. Welcome!

Within the Swedish healthcare system, confidentiality and patients' integrity are considered as very important.

Confidentiality of healthcare professionals

Within the Swedish healthcare system, all healthcare employees and professionals are bound by professional secrecy. No information can be released or shared without the patient's consent. This applies to the person's personal information, condition or treatment.

The professional secrecy obligation is regulated by the Public Access to Information and Secrecy Act.

Personal data

Your personal data (name, date of birth or social security number, address and telephone number) will be registered at the Stockholm Student Health Services. An electronic medical record will be kept, where notes about your visits at the clinic will be saved, containing background information of your symptoms as well as actions taken. No one outside the Stockholm Student Health Services is granted access to this information.

Patients' integrity

Issues concerning patients' integrity are considered as very important within Swedish healthcare. There are laws regulating authorisation to patient data. Generally, only healthcare professionals who treat the same patient are permitted to share information regarding the patient's condition or personal situation.
