Current MHS Services
(Last Updated 5/17/23)
The Mental Health Services office space is now open. MHS is providing services both in-person as well as via zoom. Note that if you are scheduled for an in-person appointment and are experiencing symptoms but would still like to meet with your counselor, please call 314-935-6695 or message your provider so your appointment can be changed to a zoom appointment. Please do not attend your in-person appointment if you are feeling ill. You will not be charged a late cancellation fee due to illness.
During peak times of the semester, students may immediately initiate therapy by utilizing TimelyCare. All enrolled Wash U students who pay the health and wellness fee have access to free, 24/7 telehealth support with TimelyCare, which offers 24/7 TalkNow consultations, scheduled counseling, psychiatry, and medical visits. A referral from Habif is not required and we encourage you to enroll now so you have easy access later!
To meet with a TimelyCare provider, set-up an account by visiting the TimelyCare website and download the TimelyCare app.
To explore community-based mental health provider options, please use our new resource ThrivingCampus.
Mental Health Services at Habif Health and Wellness Center is committed to providing exceptional, confidential and inclusive care for all students, with the goal of working collaboratively with students and the greater campus community to improve overall personal development and quality of life.
A word about confidentiality
Confidentiality is often a concern of someone who is considering counseling. The MHS staff is firmly committed to the code of confidentiality and ethics of professional practice; therefore, complete privacy can be assured UNLESS the student is a danger to themself or others. Without permission of the student, mental health records are not available to anyone outside or within the university.
