While counseling services are not offered to online students due to ethical and logistical reasons, the Counseling Center offers numerous resources, including referral information, hotline numbers, wellness apps, and confidential online mental health screenings.
Online students who are not able to access campus counseling resources, and are looking to engage in counseling for their mental health concerns may be able to find a local provider using Help PRO: https://www.helppro.com/HP/BasicSearch.aspx.
This site helps students find a provider who matches their unique needs, location, and insurance provider.
Online students can also access immediate assistance by dialing 211 on their telephone or internet.
Online students may take a confidential online mental health screening.
Another website which provides helpful resources for students is the following: http://www.ulifeline.org/post/get_help_now.
If a student feels their current circumstances are placing them in immediate danger, they should call 911 via telephone.
Online students will find additional valuable resources, including specific telephone hotline numbers as well as helpful mental health and wellness apps on our Resources page.
