In the past five years alone, demand for mental health services on college campuses has risen an estimated seven times the rate of enrollment growth. Students, parents and administrators are all searching for new solutions. Uwill’s mission is to expand access to mental health services on college campuses by providing technology-enabled telehealth therapy.
Uwill continues to expand access to mental health services through offering a 24/7/365 emergency access line that goes beyond standard de-escalation that other lines offer. Uwill’s 24/7/365 emergency access line provides solution-focused interventions that concentrate on resources and skills already available to the student in-the-moment so that at the end of the call, callers have a sense of autonomy over their distress. Our goal is to connect callers to care within the Uwill platform to prevent future distress and callers falling through the cracks of the larger mental health care system.
