We can all experience difficult periods in life and it may be good to talk to a neutral person. Do not be afraid to contact us. Read more in our blog.
If you are a student and have paid the semester fee to Sit, you can book an appointment at our psychological health service. This means that if you are a PhD student with salary and have not paid the semester fee to Sit, we unfortunately can’t provide this service.
We offer short-term and low-threshold talking therapy for less serious mental health problems. Our therapists are clinical social workers, psychiatric nurses and specialist psychologists.
You do not need a doctor’s referral when you first get in touch. If you have serious mental health problems and/or have received treatment before, we recommend that you contact your GP to assess you for a referral to a specialist healthcare service.
First of all you will be given a registration appointment free of charge. This is when you can explain what sort of help you would like. In some cases we recommend the services of other treatment providers or organisations. After the registration appointment there will be a waiting time before start of treatment.
- Waiting time for the registration appointment: 5-6 weeks
- Waiting time for treatment: At present we have a 5 to 8-week waiting time for treatment after the hour-long registration appointment.
You book the registration appointment either by coming here in person or by telephone: 73 53 86 30. Our switchboard is open Monday to Friday 8.30-11.30 am and 12.30-3 pm.
Treatment costs NOK 150 per call for the first 4 sessions (per calendar year), after which it is free of charge.
