The Centre is a psychological first aid point for students, doctoral students and staff of the University. It is a joint initiative of the Department of Psychology and the Office for People with Disabilities, supported by Ms Jolanta Choińska-Mika, Vice-Chancellor for Student Affairs. The creation of the UW CPP stems from the ever-growing concern of the university authorities about the mental health of the UW community. The head of the centre is Dr SzymonChrząstowski – a psychotherapist with extensive experience and a multi-sided view on mental health issues.
CPP services rely on psychological counseling, not therapy. Those who sign up for CPP receive short-term support and an indication of where they should get further help. Consultations shall be in the form of individual meetings. Everyone is entitled to three such meetings per semester.
