“We want to assure students that we are here for them and we strive to provide services to students remotely to benefit their mental health and well-being,” said licensed counselor and Outreach Coordinator Samantha Hamann. “We want students to know they are our number one priority and that we are here to help support them now and throughout the rest of their semester.”

The center also offer SilverCloud, a free virtual mental health platform that designs programs to fit your student's life. Students do not need to be using services in the Counseling Center to use SilverCloud.
