Mental Health Services at Health Service Centers
We provide personal and confidential medical management of common mental health concerns, including anxiety, depression, eating disorders, and sleep disorders. Our skilled and sensitive therapists will help you choose the treatment option best for you.
All student visits to the Health Service require an appointment in person. Please come directly to the reception area for psychiatry at the Health Service Center (show below) to schedule a preclinical interview with a nurse or psychologist. At that time you will complete a preclinical assessment form and then make an appointment to see a psychiatrist. After the first interview with a psychiatrist, you can make subsequent appointments either at the reception or via internet. For a medical certificate, you must see a psychiatrist. Please come to reception to make this appointment.
NO Health Insurance is required.
There are fees for medicine, examinations and the medical certificate and we do ask payment in full for medication.
Mental Health Services are available ONLY to registered students and staffs at the University of Tokyo.
