Mental problems among students are becoming increasingly common. As a study association, we think it is important to be there for our students and to help them where we can. That is why we have a confidential counselor within the association and there is also a confidential counselor from the University of Groningen. 

MARUG confidential counselor

Within the board we have a confidential counselor for the whole association. If you are struggling with something and you want to talk with somebody about it, the confidential counselor is here for you. The confindential counselor of the MARUG is Robien Akkerman, also the internal relations of the board. Robien studies psychology, she followed different courses about this topic and is a very good listener. If needed, she can redirect you to the right confidential counselor of the Rijksuniversiteit Groningen. 

Feel free to contact Robien Akkerman (+316 37342424) if you feel the need to talk to an independent person. The MARUG will be there for you, if you need something!
