Equilibrio specializes in all facets of the student experience. Whether studying or performing research close to home, across the country, or in another part of the world, we understand the emotional and psychological aspects of academic life. We work 24 hours each and every day of the year to ensure that students have an array of resources including access to independent and confidential counseling support, expert guidance as well as referrals for counseling and psychotherapy face-to-face or via a secure video calling platform. 

Help with how I'm feeling

If you’re struggling with how you’re feeling, whatever the reason, we want you to know there is no reason to go it alone. Equilibrio’s trained English-speaking counselors are ready to listen and help you find your feet, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

There's been an accident

If you’ve been seriously hurt or feel at risk in any way, call the local emergency number immediately and alert your university/college by calling the emergency phone number if available. For confidential counseling support, you can speak to an English-speaking advisor 24/7 by calling the Equilibrio HelpLine.

Europe: Call 112. The Europe-wide app 112whereareu can help the emergency services to locate you via your smartphone. It can be downloaded through the following links:


You can call the Equilibrio HelpLine in confidence – our counselors do not share any of your details with your university, college, friends, or family. The only exception to this is if you are:

          1.  A domestic, international or semester-abroad student and
          2. We feel that you may be at serious risk of harm to yourself or someone else. In this instance we’ll try to talk it through with you first. 

(If you are an MA or PHD student, your educational institution will not be notified)
