Telemental health platforms are breaking barriers and closing gaps in mental health care access. In 2019, all you need to connect with a mental health professional is a camera, a microphone, and an internet-connected device. Most devices come with a camera and microphone already built in!
We know we aren’t the only telemental health platform out there. So how is UniWellness different from the others?
We focus on college students.
All UniWellness mental health professionals are licensed in Virginia and have experience working with college students. They understand the stress of change and transition, the pressure to perform well, and the emotions of leaving home for the first time. And they’re ready to support you through it all.
Our counselors support you via video appointment, not messaging.
There’s immense value in meeting with a mental health professional face-to-face, and we don’t want to take away from that. That’s why we’re a video-based platform, not a messaging platform. With UniWellness, it feels like you’re sitting in your counselor’s office — without the hassle of getting there.
We know how hard it is for college students to access care.
Student mental health touches each member of our team in a profound way. We created UniWellness because our team has experienced the numerous barriers to student mental health care access firsthand — and we know that technology can help.
