Status of university-wide efforts
At the Health Care Center, a psychiatrist and a clinical psychologist provide
“Consultation on everything related to the mind or body” and “Student psychological consultation” programs. At the Student Counseling Office,
a campus social worker offers counseling on everything.
As university-wide efforts, we conduct a survey to find out how much fatigue students have accumulated,
and encourage the relevant students to receive consultation and counseling at the Health Care Center or the Student Counseling Office according to their results.
We also hold meetings (review meetings for student support) in which faculty members and staff members of the Health Care Center and the Student Counseling Office discuss how to support individual students.
