The Swedish healthcare system recommends that individuals treat minor health problems on their own through the purchase of non-prescription drugs and medications, which can be bought at your local pharmacy. At the pharmacy, you can receive help and advice regarding your health problem. Nurses at your local Vårdcentral also offer assistance and treatment.
If you are uncertain about what to do you are welcome to pay us a visit at Studenthälsan (the Student Health Sevice).
Our counselor Mariana Sahlström is available for advice, problem solving or short-term therapy. We prefer that you make an appointment if you wish to meet our counselor.

The student chaplain
The study period is an important time in life. It is perhaps the first time outside your hometown or country. You will meet new friends and broaden your perspectives. Shaped by new experiences and knowledge we grow as individuals.
The life of study also puts high requirements on us, and sometimes raises doubts about ones career choice and future. If that is the case, turning to someone for help or advice could very well turn out to be a good idea!
As student chaplain I am present at campus for you, to listen and talk with. There's no key to life, but maybe we can work it out together, whatever your concerns may be, and solve some of those thoughts and questions?
I'm here to support and assist all students and staff at BTH. All are welcome with their appointment: regardless of nationality, identity, credits, and regardless if you consider yourself a believer or atheist. I practice professional secrecy!
