Mental Health and Equality Center

The Mental Health and Equality Center of Nyíregyházi University operates as an independent organizational unit from the fall semester of the 2021/2022 academic year. The center functions as an organizational unit directly subordinated to the rector of our university, whose management, professional coordination of task groups, and personal and professional management are carried out by the head of the center.

The Mental Health and Equality Center is headed by László Körei, a university lecturer and Ph.D. student. Personal assistants Krisztina Lutter and Rita Molnár ensure the daily operation and organization as full-time employees. From the 2021/2022 academic year, psychologist colleague Ágnes Szatmáry will also assist the work of the center on a case-by-case basis, with which we also support the spiritual and life counseling of international students, joining the international processes of the University of Nyíregyházi.

The main mission of the Center for Mental Health and Equality is to support the mental health of our students and help them maintain their mental stamina. The important mission of our center is to ensure equal opportunities for students and to implement disadvantage compensation in practice. In connection with all of this, we effectively support our students in their daily lives in academic matters and health issues, so that they can provide as much content as possible in their careers and experience the spiritual, material, and environmental atmosphere of being a university citizen.

Members of the Committee for Helping Students with Disabilities: committee chairman László Körei, head of the center, Dr. Harsányiné. Ágnes Petneházi psychologist, assistant professor, Oroszné Dr. Beatrix Balla is a lawyer, case manager expert, István Tamás is a student delegate member and Dr. Ildikó Vajda is a college teacher and preventive exercise therapist. All of them effectively support the work of the Center for Mental Health and Equality in their field of expertise.

Units within our center (Equality Group, Mental Health Consultation Group) function as functionally defined task groups daily. Thus, for example, promoting the integration and inclusion of students with disabilities, providing study and access support, personal assistance, resolving disadvantage compensatory steps, and providing a wide range of services all serve to help our students feel comfortable and approach their optimal state.

Career & Life guidance, mental health counseling, and psychological counseling are also available at our center upon request. We are constantly working on the implementation of transfers that reduce dropout rates and support student retention, as well as on the development of skills that promote effective integration into the labor market. Our awareness-raising and attitude-building sessions are ongoing, and our new students joined us with great interest at the beginning of September. After the start of the 2021/2022 academic year, we created the foundations for the creation of an effective peer helper system for our volunteer students, the aim of which is for our older students to help and facilitate their peers during their university years. Our services are constantly expanding, which flexibly adapt to the individual and group needs of our students and employees.

At the University of Nyíregyháza, psychosomatic unity, i.e. harmony between physical and mental health, is also extremely important for students with disabilities. Due to their different, special needs, I support the individual help of our students and the focused treatment of their problems. To do this, in addition to professional and study-supporting information, I support our students with helpful conversations, the application of stress management techniques, awareness of coping strategies, and methods that help optimize mental health. In addition to all this, I also support the development of their competences and the enhancement of their successes with a wide-spectrum methodological culture.

Prevention and therapeutic services in the field of exercise therapy

To prevent the consequences of an incorrect lifestyle and to manage their development, I consider it important to create a movement therapy consultation for students within the framework of health development services at the University of Nyíregyháza, within the framework of which it is possible to compile an individual exercise program and, if required, to participate in individual and group exercise for preventive or therapeutic purposes...

In addition to active participation in the program, we also want to allow helping interested students online with nutrition and healthy lifestyle advice.

Professional counseling can be requested by all students whose persistent or acute locomotor or internal medicine complaints justify participation in a corrective exercise program, or who simply want to do something to maintain their health.

The content of the program:

condition assessment and movement test,

determining the fitness level,

compiling an individual exercise program,

individual and group preventive gymnastics according to needs,

individual musculoskeletal rehabilitation session,

individual and group therapeutic swimming
