Teletherapy Resources

Telehealth is a rapidly growing field that involves the use of technology to deliver healthcare services. It is designed to provide convenient access to care that can be delivered when and where it is convenient for you! The services described below connect students with licensed mental health professionals who are available via phone and/or video. If you require a private space to access these services, please contact the Business Office and we will arrange a space for you at the Health Service. Your therapist will work with you to make sure the sessions are arranged to fit your schedule. 

CMHS is partnered with the following resource to provide students with access to telemental healthcare. (Please be sure to note the disclaimer below.)
