Taking care of the health and well-being of our students is essential so that they can enjoy their time at IED.
Life in a design school can be very exciting and interesting, but at the same time it can be challenging to adapt to a new environment and the stress of the student life.
Sometimes it can be difficult to communicate with family and friends, or try to solve problems on our own. A good professional is very useful at this point.
The IED Madrid offers you the opportunity to speak in a totally confidential manner with a psychological office about everything that has an impact on your academic life, personal well-being or mental health.
What do you have to do?
If you feel unwell, have anxiety problems or any psychological problem that prevents you from leading your normal life or from developing yourself as you would like, don't hesitate to take a step forward.
You just have to make an appointment with our professional psychologists who will assist you to learn about your case in details. Remember that the first three appointments with this professional will be financed by the IED Madrid, if you need to continue these sessions they will be at your own expense.
In your first session you will be assigned a psychotherapist with whom you can discuss your concerns. This professional will assess your needs and will give you the support you need to find the best way forward.
Your psychologist will not share your personal information with anyone outside the services of the psychological office. The only exceptions would be if:
- The psychologist considers that not giving this information puts your life or physical integrity or that of others at risk.
- The Law requires that this information be delivered to a court of law.
What can the psychological cabinet treat?
- Mood problems. For example: depression, anxiety and stress.
- Persistent difficulties adjusting to university life.
