We get asked this question a lot. We get it — there are others who are working to reduce barriers to mental health care access for students. So let’s talk about what makes UniWellness unique.
What makes UniWellness stand out from other telemental health platforms?
First and foremost, UniWellness stands out because it was designed specifically for student mental health. With college students’ unique challenges and college counseling centers’ workflow in mind, we built an innovative and easy-to-use telehealth platform that meets the needs of your students and your counselors.
UniWellness also stands out because it’s addressing college counseling centers’ long waitlists. About half of students who seek services at their college’s counseling center were receiving mental health care before coming to college. UniWellness allows these students to continue seeing their counselors from home, thereby maintaining continuity of care and freeing that space in the counseling center for other students to begin receiving mental health services as soon as they need them. When connecting with a counselor from home, the counseling center becomes a student’s case manager, creating a wellness hub that marries the expertise of the counselor who knows the student well and the counselor who knows the student’s new campus environment well. We create a wellness team for your students without creating another silo.
A couple of other things make us stand out, too. Our features are customizable, allowing us to meet the unique needs of your student body. Scheduling, messaging, file-sharing, note-taking, and journaling are all available within the platform. Additionally, UniWellness is accessible through your web browser and doesn’t require any downloads, and it’s intuitive and easy to use.
