Why we exist and what we do

We are aware that Lund has a large number of students suffering from isolation, strained economy, unfinished education and low self-esteem. “A Way Forward” is directed to university students that have, or are at risk of developing mental health issues. To promote completed studies, a larger social network and a higher quality of life, we offer:

  • Support and work space for students
  • Several opportunities to study in group every week
  • Individual coaching and supported education
  • Lectures and workshops that promote mental and physical wellness and personal development
  • Network meetings and social activities with other students

A space for studying & community

A nice and supportive space for studying that is open every weekday and is there to help you find structure. We have several “study groups” every week, both on our online platform and IRL at the Fountain House.

Individual support

We offer supported education where you together with your own student coach can set up short-term goals for the week and also make a more extensive study plan for the semester. You get the opportunity to meet your coach continuously and talk about your studies and everyday life.

We also offers coaching and support concerning seeking, finding and keeping jobs. 

Social activities

Social activities are arranged, both at the Fountain House and in contexts outside of the Fountain House. All of the activities are free and voluntary. We offer you a range of opportunities and choices.

Network Meetings and groups

We provide lectures, workshops and groups related to: studies, work life, health and wellness and invite interesting guests that lecture on these subjects. We work to promote social networking, wellness and increased self-esteem for members.


We believe that it is important to take care of both body and mind. That is why we offer training in several different forms every week. Feel free to check out the calendar on our webpage.
