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

Carleton University Launches Virtual Health Resources for Students Spring Term 2024

Carleton University is set to launch a new initiative in Spring Term 2024, providing students with free virtual medical and mental health resources around the clock. The service comes as an addition to the comprehensive health care services already provided by Carleton Student Health and Counseling (SHAC). This decision was made after feedback from students, faculty, and staff, gathered by the Student Mental Health and Wellness Working Group over the past year, recommended investing in telehealth among other suggestions.

The new resources will be provided through a partnership with TimelyCare, a secure and accredited platform that follows campus-specific protocols to ensure continuity of care. Students will benefit from convenient care, reduced wait times, access to a diverse provider network, and translation services supporting over 240 languages.

Carleton students will have access to virtual care from licensed physicians and counselors located anywhere in the United States. 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. This initiative is expected to provide personalized care when students need it most while studying abroad or spending College breaks outside of the U.S., ensuring that they have access to on-demand mental health and emotional support 24/7.
