You don’t have to do everything by yourself! Regardless of whether you are dealing with everyday student life, financial worries or the feeling of loneliness – there are many organisations in Austria where you can get support and solutions for many of your problems!
Everyday student life is not always easy
As a young adult after school, you are often thrown into this completely new, unfamiliar situation. You move out of home, build a new environment, enjoy the new personal freedom but suddenly have to stand on your own two feet – all by yourself. Many new problems and hurdles arise and sometimes it just feels good to have the opportunity to get the help and support you need.
The majority of students struggle with mental health problems during their studies. About 50% of all students in Austria stated in a student social survey that they had already suffered from mental health issues that made their studies difficult and that they opted to get professional help.
