WVWC joins Uwill offering students increased teletherapy options

BUCKHANNON, West Virginia – West Virginia Wesleyan College recently announced a partnership with Uwill, the leading mental health and wellness solution for colleges and students, to increase and expand upon the college’s existing counseling capabilities. West Virginia Wesleyan College adds this teletherapy option at a time of increased mental health challenges across the United States. Uwill’s proprietary technology facilitates immediate appointments with licensed mental health counselors based on student needs and preferences.

“We are committed to fostering an inclusive and supportive campus environment that values the well-being of every individual,” said Alison Whitehair, Vice President for Student Development, at West Virginia Wesleyan College. “Uwill helps us to empower our students to prioritize their mental health and connect with a counselor that is right for them to support their academic journey.” 

Recent survey data shows 79% of surveyed students reported experiencing moderate or high stress levels within the last 30 days. Additionally, while 42% of college students have expressed the need for help with mental health difficulties in the last year, more than 60% of these students have never received counseling or therapy.

“We’re proud to be able to support colleges in a way that provides students with immediacy and without obstacles,” said Michael London, founder and CEO of Uwill. “Our solution empowers students to select a therapist they feel most comfortable with when its convenient for them.”

Utilizing its proprietary technology and counselor team, Uwill pioneered the first student and therapist matching platform. The solution offers an immediate appointment with a licensed counselor based on student preferences, all modalities of teletherapy, a direct crisis connection, wellness events, realtime data, and support. 

WVWC’s Center for Counseling and Wellbeing continues to offer free consultation, crisis support, solution-focused single session and short-term counseling sessions to all undergraduate and graduate students as  part of Wesleyan’s commitment to student well-being. Services are also provided through Community Care of West Virginia.
