What can I use telehealth for?

When you're feeling sick or overwhelmed, you can talk to a licensed provider from your smartphone or any web-enabled device for free. Medical providers can diagnose common conditions (such as a cold, flu, or sinus infection) and the TalkNow service gives students a safe space to talk (for example, about anxiety surrounding COVID-19, relationship issues, or depression). Scheduled counseling offers up to twelve 45-minute sessions individually or with a dependent or significant other.  The newest offering is Psychiatry services.

  • Stress and anxiety
  • Adjustment issues
  • Relationship issues
  • Depression
  • Grief and loss
  • Trauma and PTSD
  • Alcohol misuse/abuse
