Counseling Support Line
Students may speak with a trained mental health clinician for crisis intervention, general mental health support, and consultation by calling 855-465-5013 (United States-based number, international dialing applies). Reasons students have called include, but are not limited to panic attacks, stress, thoughts of suicide or self-harm, low motivation, homesickness, and concerns about a friend or classmate. All calls to the Counseling Support Line from students are screened for safety.
The availability of counseling services varies by location. Counselors abroad may not have the same guidelines regarding doctor/patient confidentiality as they do in the U.S. In most situations, GeoBlue covers the cost of counseling services. The student is responsible for all expenses related to ongoing medication.
Alternatively, Students looking for an on-line counseling session can use their GeoBlue health insurance coverage to get in touch with a virtual counselor through the My Online Therapy platform.
