If you are officially enrolled at the University of Bremen, then you can contact the University's Psychological Counselling Service free of charge. Depending on your counselling needs, you can also talk to the social counselling here.
If you work at the University of Bremen but are not enrolled, you can seek psychological advice from Cassandra Ruhm.
If you suffer from a recognised and already identified mental disorder, such as depression or anxiety disorders, the health insurance usually covers the entire costs.
In general, the benefits vary depending on whether you have statutory or private health insurance. The health insurance company with which you are insured also plays a role.
Before you start any kind of therapy, please discuss the payment or reimbursement with your health insurance company.
