Peirce College Partners with Uwill to Provide Teletherapy to Support Students

Solution provides immediate access to licensed counselors

PHILADELPHIA, PA — APRIL 6, 2022 — Uwill, the leading teletherapy solution for college campuses, today announced a partnership with Peirce College to help meet demand for counseling on campus. As the need for campus mental health support increases nationwide, Uwill’s solution accounts for students' preferences to match them with licensed counselors.

“As an institution whose primary focus is on serving working adult learners, it’s vitally important for us to provide mental health solutions that students can access on their own schedule, without having to worry about wait times or limited availability,” said Brad Hodge, Vice President of Enrollment Management and Student Services at Peirce College. “By providing personalized, 24/7 access to teletherapy, Uwill is removing the most persistent barriers to counseling and support — and helping us fulfill our mission of giving students all the resources they need to succeed.”

Peirce College is launching this new teletherapy solution at a time of increasing mental health challenges reported at campuses nationwide. Prior to 2020, up to 60 percent of college students reported experiencing significant anxiety, and according to recent research, more than eight in 10 college students have seen their mental health negatively affected over the past two years.

“Too often, the availability of counselors and therapists on campus cannot keep up with students’ need for support — a challenge that has only increased over the past two years,” said Michael London, founder and CEO of Uwill. “This is about expanding the capacity of Peirce College’s mental health programs to meet students where they are and whenever they need help.”

Utilizing its proprietary technology and counselor team, Uwill is the only secure student-to-therapist matching platform and wellness environment. The solution offers an immediate connection to an available licensed counselor based on student preferences, all modalities of teletherapy (video, phone, chat, and message), 24/7/365 emergency access, group sessions, live events, detailed reporting and support. Uwill works with a diverse cross-section of institutions, including the University of North Carolina, Fairfield University, University of San Francisco, American Public University System, and the Massachusetts and Michigan state higher education systems to expand their mental health and wellness offering.
