Colleges and Universities are on the front lines of the mental health crisis impacting our country. As rates of depression and anxiety continue to soar among college students, counseling facilities struggle to keep up. When college campuses actively support their students’ mental health they become proactive in preventing a range of potentially serious and lasting consequences.
One of the ways that Counseling Departments and Student Health Services can amplify their efforts in getting students the help they need is by the use of Telepsychiatry.
Students can receive treatment without leaving campus on issues such as:
- Eating Disorders
- Sleep disturbances
- Binge Drinking
- Drug Abuse
Telepyschiatry gives students access to board certified psychiatrists through simple “skype like” technology offered at their campus counseling department.
Studies have drawn attention to the growing mental health needs of students and the positive impact mental health services have on college student success.
Campus Telepsychiatry is affordable and easy to implement. For more information call 855-779-2410
