Mental Health

How are you feeling ?

Anyone can suffer from mental health difficulties. International students are often even more vulnerable because of their new unfamiliar environment. Of course, it is hard to talk about one’s personal problems. But there are people available to talk to about your troubles, no matter the subject. There should be no pressure in seeking help, seeking support.


Motiv is a centre for personal development, working with the TUDelft. One of the services they provide is a student support line. The conversations are confidential and don’t necessarily have to be centered around a specific problem. If you want to talk to someone about your situation or anything in your mind right now, you can email them or call them directly.

Motiv is a partner of DISS, if you want more information about this service, contact us or access it through here

The TUDelft itself has several psychologists for helping students. Meeting them is very easy. For a short conversation, all you need to do is show up during the walk-in hours at the office. They can advise you to make an appointment for a longer session. These sessions with the psychologists are free of charge. Nevertheless, the longer sessions are limited to 3 sessions per student.
