It is important that all of our members have someone to talk to if they feel stressed, uncomfortable or are dealing with any issues. If you have any issues that you are struggling to deal with by yourself or just want to get something off your chest, please do not hesitate to reach out to one of the confidential advisors within Sirius A, whose contact information you may find below. Feel free to text them a message or Email them to make an appointment.
The confidential advisors can offer a listening ear and may be able to direct you to other parties who may be able to help you more effectively. Anything you discuss with the confidential advisors will never be shared with others, and your identity nor the topics discussed will be shared with the board of Sirius A or other advisors without your explicit consent.
For more professional aid, please refer to the addresses below. If you are worried for your own well-being or that of a friend, contact the suicide prevention hotline.
The University of Groningen also has an appointed confidential advisor. They are the first contact person for students and
staff who experience undesirable behaviour or discriminatory treatment and suspected malpractice with the University.
More information and contact details can be found on the University webpage.
