SUNY Ulster joins Uwill as 5th New York institution offering free teletherapy to students
NATICK, Mass., Feb. 2, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- SUNY Ulster, today, announced a partnership with Uwill, the leading teletherapy solution for colleges and students, to enhance and expand the college's existing counseling capabilities. Research suggests that community college students may be in greater need of mental health support. Uwill's best-in-class technology facilitates immediate appointments with licensed mental health counselors based on student needs and preferences.
"Providing equitable and flexible care is critical in supporting each student in their academic journey," said Alison Buckley, Ed.D., President at SUNY Ulster. "Adding Uwill gives our students additional access to resources for the individualized support they deserve."
Recent survey data from Uwill and NASPA shows a continued decline in student mental health. 72% of student affairs and counseling leadership said the overall trajectory of campus mental health worsened during the past year.
