Information and Instructions
Our students are dispersed throughout the country and the world during a time of uncertainty about the coronavirus (COVID-19) and how it will affect our healthcare system. We are writing to tell you about a new option we are making available to you to care for your medical and mental health needs.
We are now providing a free service called Campus.Health. All domestic and international students will be able to talk to a mental health provider 24/7 for any mental health need. There is also a telehealth medical option for domestic students that allows you to receive health care for a variety of conditions at a time when some medical offices and hospitals may be overrun caring for those with COVID-19. Unfortunately, an international telehealth medical option is not available due to licensing requirements.
We also want to remind you that Student Health Services is still open for medical advice and in-person appointments with a provider 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. CST for any enrolled Wheaton student by calling 630.752.5072. International Students who have returned to their home countries can still call for medical advice. The Counseling Center at Wheaton College is still available for consultation and referral phone calls for students now located outside the state of Illinois, and staff members are still available for phone or video conference therapy calls for students who are currently within the state of Illinois. Students may contact the Counseling Center at email@example.com.
Whether you're feeling sick or overwhelmed, you will be able to talk to a Campus.Health licensed provider for free from your smartphone or any web-enabled device. Campus.Health medical providers can diagnose and treat common conditions (cold, flu, sinus infection), and their TalkNow service gives students a safe space to talk about anything at any time (anxiety surrounding COVID-19, relationships, depression).
