Mental Health Support Units
Student Guidance and Psychological Counseling Center (BUREM)
Student Guidance and Psychological Counseling Center (BUREM) offers direct and indirect assistance aimed at supporting students’ psychological, social and academic development throughout their life in the university. Students who apply to the center are first given a pre-interview and are directed, in line with their needs, to available services such as ongoing group work, individual counseling, or psychiatric help. To improve the quality of university life and environment, BUREM collaborates with other student services units and relevant academic departments. In this context, the Center organizes educational events such as seminars, conferences, and panel discussions; prepares resources like leaflets and brochures and shares them on the Internet; evaluates and writes reports on the work that is being done. Student participation in the services is on voluntary basis and all work is based on the principle of confidentiality of information.
Health Center Psychiatric Unit
There are two psychiatrists on duty at the Infirmary, the polyclinic service unit of the Health Center, on weekdays from 09.00 to 15.30. Although the psychiatrists provide polyclinic service during work hours, they also take part in studies concerning protection of mental health. They have primary authority to respond to psychological emergencies occurring on campus (See Guidebook for Psychiatric Emergencies).
