CPS services to be offered via in-person and telehealth

Thursday, August 05, 2021

Starting on August 16th, Counseling and Psychological Services (CPS) will move to a hybrid service system, offering options for both in-person and virtual telehealth services to students.

Currently enrolled students who are new to CPS or who have not had contact with CPS for more than three months can make a new appointment by:

  1. Logging into to their MyUHS online portal to schedule an Initial Consultation with a counselor, and
  2. Selecting whether that appointment will be in-person at the McCosh Health Center on campus, or conducted through virtual telehealth.

Note: Students with in-person appointments will be asked to wear a mask or face covering at all times, including during sessions, when they are inside of McCosh Health Center.

Please be aware that CPS may need to move back to an all-telehealth service model with relatively short notice, if the University’s public health guidance indicates that it is no longer safe to conduct sessions in person. 

CPS continues to generally offer time-limited mental health services to students, and will assist students who need long-term or specialized care to connect with private providers in the community. Students who receive further treatment at CPS may also be limited in the extent to which they can choose to receive that treatment in-person or via telehealth, based on the availability of services in the preferred format.
