Counselling services: Introductory Text

Higher Education Institutions in Europe face a variety of challenges related to the provision of mental health care and wellbeing support. Counselling Services focus on providing psychological support and career guidance. As the need for mental health treatment among university students increases, Psychological Counselling Services are overcrowded and unable to satisfy students’ needs. In addition, Career Counselling Services sometimes ignore minority students, who are a key population, as they are at a higher risk of dropping out and being out of the labour market once they have completed their studies. In this regard, this toolkit outlines some promising initiatives to make Psychological Counselling accessible in HE, as well as examples of Career Counselling to address drop-out rates and support students who might be underrepresented in HE. As a summary, this toolkit contains 2 video lectures; one on Counselling Services in HE and one on Inclusive Practices in Career Guidance in HE. Finally, 5 practical examples are presented through infographics and short videos
