How does a psychological follow‑up take place?
First, you will meet with a psychologist from the Health and Psychological Support Service and you will proceed to an evaluation of your situation. You will define your problem and list the reasons that lead you to a consultation. You will then decide whether or not to continue with a psycho‑therapeutic follow‑up.
Depending on the reasons for your consultation and your financial situation, we will offer you to:
- Refer you to external resources that allow for a follow‑up to meet your needs
