SSETU provides information/services such as:
A qualified senior family physician is available at the medical room for five hours 5 days a week (10am to 3pm, Monday-Friday).
Thalassemia is an inherited blood disorder which goes undetected in most cases. It is medically strongly recommended that all youth of marriageable age undergo thalassemia screening through a simple blood test. It needs to be done only once in a lifetime.
Ahmedabad University is a responsible institution and cares about the well-being of all its students. Therefore the University organises screening camps routinely for its students in collaboration with the Red Cross Society. Thalassemia screening costs are high but it is free for our students as the cost is borne by the University. It would be highly beneficial to get this simple screening done under very safe and hygienic conditions. It takes barely 5 minutes.
Adapting and adjusting to a new environment usually takes time. Leaving home, family, school friends and joining a new course are sometimes reasons for a person to feel lost and without friends. SSETU team will be happy to extend the hand of friendship, listen to you and suggest ways to feel better and happier.
We are there for the students and are always happy to help. Sharing your concerns with someone who is neutral, objective, non-judgmental and mature always helps. Some helpful tips can ease the study pressure.
Of course! A qualified counsellor is available to provide insights and guidance. You can fix up a time and come to see the counsellor. She is available from 11.30am to 3.30pm, Monday-Friday.
Sure! Services of an online counselling portal is available to the student community. You can chat online, have an audio session or make a video call for counselling. All these services are offered free.
In life, we often go through rough patches when we need guidance and support from someone. A counsellor is a mental health professional who helps people tide over such difficult times by helping them tap into their own personal resources and strengths. The counsellor remains neutral and non-judgmental and maintains complete confidentiality. He/she offers tools that help restore confidence, self-esteem and self-worth so that the individual can lead a fulfilling, productive and happy life. A psychiatrist is a medical professional (a doctor) who specializes in mental disorders. Such an expert can deal with mental health issues that incapacitate an individual and stronger intervention is needed to restore mental health. It may include medication also.
The University is committed to providing wellness services to its community of students, faculty and staff. To augment the services further, a panel of mental health professionals has been taken on board and their services are available to the University community. These professionals have expertise in various domains and are qualified psychiatrists, psychologists or therapists.
SSETU will be happy to help; however, the prime focus is the student community. That remains its priority. Time permitting, it will be happy to provide guidance to staff and faculty members too.
