Mid Sweden University, via the International Relations Office, has been in contact with a few students who come from the relevant areas. The Student Health Office offers support to all students who feel bad or worried.

If you are concerned, you can always talk to your closest manager for support and advice. Employees in need of support can contact the occupational health services.
