Psychological Services

Insead has an international team of psychologists to work with students, staff and faculty in times of personal challenge or crisis. We offer individual and couple consultations, as well as Mindfulness groups, on the Fontainebleau and Singapore campuses. We also run workshops on various psychological issues for MBA students.

We work both in-person and remotely.

Appointments are completely confidential and free of charge.

How to help someone

  • Speak directly to him/her about your concerns. People in distress are almost always receptive to an expression of genuine interest, caring, and concern.
  • Be discrete. Talk to the person in a confidential and private setting
  • Be specific about the behaviors you've observed that have caused your concern (e.g., falling grades, drinking too much, crying a lot, withdrawing from friends, statements about suicide, etc.). Clearly stating your observations makes it more difficult for the person to deny that a problem exists and also lets him or her know that you care enough to notice.
  • Let your friend/fellow student/colleague know that counseling at Psychological Services is free, voluntary, and confidential.
  • Assist in making an appointment. Although individuals have to make the appointment for themselves it is possible to bring people you are concerned about directly to Psychological Services when that level of support is necessary.
  • Make an appointment yourself with Psychological Services to discuss ways to most effectively support your friend/fellow student/colleague.
