Western Wyoming Community College has entered into a partnership with Uwill, a provider of mental health and wellness solutions for colleges and students, to increase the college’s existing counseling capabilities for all students.

“Uwill has the ability to provide our students with diverse, immediate, and effective mental health care,” said Amy Galley, director of Wellbeing and Accessibility/Title IX at Western Wyoming Community College. “While the competition for a teletherapy provider was strong, Uwill stood out among the rest for their innovative technology and ease of access.”

The community college serves nearly 3,000 students across a rural and remote five-county region of the state. The school said in a press release that the campus-wide teletherapy initiative will help support the college’s diverse student population of part-time, working, and adult students. Uwill helps connect students to mental counseling through its “matching” platform that connects students with a therapist that they choose in less than five minutes.

“Community college leaders have long understood that supporting student mental health and ensuring student success are two sides of the same coin,” said Michael London, founder and CEO of Uwill. “Community and technical colleges in rural and remote areas are responding to increased demand for mental health support, and teletherapy solutions can help to close these gaps in treatment, ensuring that students have the resources needed to achieve their educational and career goals.”

In addition to offering immediate appointments with a licensed counselor based on student preferences, the school also noted that the Uwill platform offers all modalities of teletherapy, a direct crisis connection, wellness events, real-time data, and technical support.
