The GRC-Online Counseling System allows professional consultants to provide advice and support to people seeking help in all fields of social work - no longer exclusively face-to-face in the counseling centers but (additionally or completely) online. It opens up a confidential digital communication room for social work which is equivalent to the existing meeting room in the counseling centers.
