Dear Faculty and Staff:
We are pleased to announce a partnership with Uwill, a leading student mental health and wellness solution. Uwill offers students free immediate access to teletherapy through its easy-to-use online platform, as well as a mental health crisis line.
To schedule teletherapy, students can register/login to Uwill and choose a therapist based on their preferences including availability, issue, gender, language, and ethnicity. Students can also choose a time that fits their schedule with day, night, and weekend availability. Uwill services are private, secure, and confidential.
If a student is experiencing a mental health crisis, they can call 833.646.1526 for help 24/7/365 (For a medical emergency, call 911).
Access is quick and easy. Students can register and book their first session in just minutes by clicking here.
Students who have already started therapy with Ashley Abate or prefer to connect with New Horizons may still access services at email@example.com.
Please remind your students of this resource if you feel they are struggling and need someone to talk to. The FAQ and quick start guide are attached and available on the G drive in the Student Issues and Concerns folder.
This new service is provided through a state of Illinois funding allocation directed toward implementation of the Mental Health Early Action on Campus Act.
In addition to this new partnership with Uwill, Highland continues to provide local resources and information on the student portal’s Counseling Center page. We also offer peer mentoring, success coaching, a free mental health screening tool, and crisis intervention. You are welcome to contact Liz Gerber, Anthony Musso, or another member of the Behavioral Intervention Team with questions.
