Access to counseling at the the University of Iowa just got easier
Instead of trekking across campus, you can now trek down your hall
The University of Iowa has instituted new efforts to support student’s mental health.
The university announced many of the new additions and changes they have made to the way mental health is addressed on campus, The Wall Street Journal reports.
Last year the university added an in-dorm counselor to one of the residence halls, not only to help overwhelmed RAs but also students who can not make the trek across the river to the university’s main counseling center. The counselor was almost instantly flooded with patients, proving the service to be a success.
