Student Support

Student mental health and well-being are among our most pressing concerns. Hence, we are working closely with the Counsellors of the Student Affairs Division of UM, as well as the Faculty of Medicine’s Psychological Medicine Department to provide a confidential support service for students in times of need. Below are all the information you need to get in touch with someone who can listen to and address any personal, emotional, or psychological concerns.


If you have learning difficulties, or are experiencing anything affecting the quality of your learning and life, or if you just need someone to talk to in general, you are welcome to contact a counsellor from the Student Affairs Division of UM either by visiting them at the Psychology Management and Counselling Section, or by contacting any one of the available numbers for the Tele-Counselling and Case Consultation Services.

UMMC Psychiatry Clinic

UMMC’s Psychiatry Clinic is open for walk-ins for any student who feels that they may be suffering from more severe mental health problems and is seeking a psychiatrist’s help. Do take note that for new cases, students are required to get a referral letter from either Primary Care doctors, General Practitioners, the Student Health Clinic, or Counsellors. Simply visit any of the aforementioned people and express your concerns or your mental health situation, which they will assess before giving you a referral letter which you can then bring with you to the clinic.

  • Walk-in hours: Monday to Friday (7.00am – 11.30am)
  • Location: Psychiatry Clinic, Ground Floor, Psychological Medicine Complex, UMMC


We believe that every UM medical student has the potential to enact change within our community as well as their own student experience, whether through voicing their opinions in society meetings, making amendments to our constitution, or starting new initiatives and projects. The documents below contain all the particulars you need to do so.
