Virtual Medical and Mental Health Resources Unveiled at Carleton University to Boost Student Well-being

Carleton College enhances medical and mental health support for students through free virtual care with 24/7 availability

In response to feedback from students, faculty, and staff gathered by the Student Mental Health and Wellness Working Group over the past year, Carleton University has announced that it will be offering free virtual medical and mental health resources to its students around the clock starting from the first day of Spring Term 2024.

These new resources are provided through a partnership with TimelyCare, a secure and accredited platform that follows campus-specific protocols to ensure continuity of care. By offering virtual care from licensed physicians and counselors located anywhere in the United States, Carleton hopes to better meet the need for personalized care when students need it most.

In addition to existing on-campus services provided by Carleton Student Health and Counseling (SHAC), these virtual resources are free of charge and do not require insurance billing. The TimelyCare resources available to Carleton students include on-demand medical care, mental health and emotional support, mental health counseling, psychiatric support, health coaching, and digital self-care content such as meditation and yoga sessions.

For more information on the medical and mental health resources available to Carleton students, they can visit the SHAC website. With this new service in place, Carleton is committed to providing its students with access to comprehensive healthcare services whenever they need them.
