TimelyMD & EVERFI are Transforming Higher Education
Higher education tech leaders transforming student mental health
TimelyMD, the nation’s leading telehealth provider specializing in higher education, and EVERFI, the foremost social impact education innovator, have formed a strategic partnership that enhances and combines resources to improve the mental health and well-being of millions of students.
The need for mental health education and support
Colleges and universities continue to face challenges when it comes to supporting the elevated mental health needs of their students. One year after the COVID-19 pandemic began, 82% of college students continue to experience increased levels of distress. And research before the pandemic found that mental health challenges can lead to low GPAs, decreased retention and engagement, and disruptions in academic progress.
While student mental health is a top priority for college and university presidents, with 96% of presidents expressing concern in a recent Inside Higher Ed survey, many institutions face staffing shortages due to budget cuts and increased demand. And student access to preventative resources and counseling services may be diminished in a virtual learning environment. Many institutions are making the difficult decision between proactively investing in mental health education or providing clinical resources for students most in need of support — despite both approaches being critical for student well-being and success.
Working together to impact student health and well-being
TimelyMD and EVERFI’s strategic partnership enables higher education administrators to address the mental health crisis in higher education. Institutions will be able to integrate TimelyMD’s teletherapy platform directly into EVERFI’s technology-based education to meet students wherever they are in their mental health journey.
Every campus wants its students to thrive. The right healthcare and technology resources help make it a reality.
