Safeguarding Mental Health: Support Systems at Al-Quds University

At Al-Quds University, we understand that academic life can be demanding, and we take mental health seriously. We recognize its crucial role in overall wellbeing, which is why we have integrated mental health support into our health services for both staff and students.

We have a dedicated counseling center with professionally trained therapists who are available to assist with a variety of issues that can affect mental health. The counselors are trained to handle a range of situations – from academic stress and anxiety, depression, to more complex mental health conditions. The counseling center offers one-on-one sessions, group therapy, and workshops on various aspects of mental health.

In addition, our staff benefits from an Employee Assistance Program, which offers confidential psychological support, helping them to manage personal and professional challenges that may impact their work performance, health, and wellbeing.

We have also fostered partnerships with local mental health organizations. These partnerships enhance our capacity to address mental health concerns and extend our reach beyond the confines of the campus.

Furthermore, we are keen on fostering a supportive community that prioritizes mental health. We conduct regular educational campaigns on mental health issues, debunking myths, and promoting an environment of understanding and empathy. We firmly believe in equipping our students and staff with the resources they need to take care of their mental health.

At Al-Quds University, we are committed to promoting an environment that supports mental health, as we understand it’s not just about academic success, but the overall wellbeing of our community.
