“Being a medical student i think we have to look at the whole patient and acknowledge that the mental health and wellbeing plays a big role as well even in physical illnesses. thats why i wanted to work besides my study in a company, that focuses on mental health. i love working directly with the clients and Counsellors, i think it is very rewarding!”
