Prescott College Partners with Uwill
Solution allows college to expand capacity and support diverse needs
Uwill, the leading teletherapy solution for colleges and students, today announced a partnership with Prescott College to help meet demand for counseling for remote and on-campus students. As the need for mental health support increases nationwide, Uwill’s solution accounts for student preferences to immediately match them with licensed and available counselors.
“We aim to educate and support students of diverse ages and backgrounds to be successful and enhance our world community,” said Kristine Preziosi, Dean of Student Affairs at Prescott College. “It is crucial we support the whole student with the resources they need to succeed, especially as it relates to mental health and counseling.”
Prescott College is launching this new teletherapy solution at a time of increasing mental health challenges reported at campuses nationwide. Prior to 2020, up to 60 percent of college students reported experiencing significant anxiety, and according to recent research, more than eight in 10 college students have seen their mental health negatively affected over the past two years.
“The demand for student mental health support has drastically increased over the past decade, nevermind the past two years,” said Michael London, founder and CEO of Uwill. “This is about complementing the work that Prescott College is doing on their campus by providing a solution to support all students, whether studying on campus or remotely..”
