Freshman Welcome Briefing
Our Wellness team will meet all Freshman during orientation within their RCA group to introduce Counselling’s Services and to answer any mental health related questions you may have.
On Campus Counselling
In a safe and confidential environment, our Counsellors/Psychologists provides free one-on-one face-to-face support through scheduled appointments in 1) our Wellness Centre or 2) NUS Counselling Psychological Services (CPS).
From time to time, Wellness will conduct topic-specific group counselling sessions base on observed needs of our students. Group counselling enables students to give and receive support from other with similar issues, gain understanding of problems and explore possible solutions, practice interpersonal skills in a safe group setting, learn more about how you come across to others, increase observation and feedback skills, enhance problem-solving skills, improve emotional expressiveness, decrease social isolation, and develop good communication skills.
