Psychological and medical support

Are you encountering medical or psychological problems? We are here to help!

At the Graduate Institute 

Students have the possibility to meet with a psychologist (member of the Geneva Association of Psychologists, AGPsy) at the Graduate Institute for an orientation session of 45 minutes, which aims to asses the student's concern(s) and facilitate further access to psychological support in "Pôle Sante Social" or another institution according to your needs.

Your comments on your session with the psychologist would be appreciated. Please click on the following form for feedback.

From beginning October to June :

To make an appointment with one of the psychologists from AGPsy on Tuesday or Thursday between 5.30 pm and 8.30 pm, click here. You will receive an email confirming the appointment and it will be important to remember the date and time since you will not receive a reminder. If you are unable to attend, please cancel your appointment (via the confirmation email). No-show appointments will be charged CHF 20.-.

Do you experience difficulties related to stress and anxiety?

Our Student Support and Wellbeing Team is here to help you! Together we will seek for a solution and/or clarify whether further psychological treatment from the "Pôle Santé Social", or elsewhere, would be helpful.
