COVID-19 Response: Services to assist faculty and staff in providing support to students

As a part of our response to the COVID-19 crisis, the Counseling and Mental Health Center and Longhorn Wellness Center are offering some unique resources to help faculty and staff support UT students. These are non-counseling options. By participating, students do not become clients of CMHC. Scroll down to learn more.

Canvas well-being modules:

You can be added to a Canvas course with 4 health and wellness topic modules that you can use in your class. Click here to enroll, then click on "Enroll in this course" on the upper right once you're there. Instructions about how to use these modules in your course can be found on the course homepage.

Counselor virtual visits to your class or meeting:

Choose from 2 options:

  • Invite a counselor to join your class, meeting, or a student group for 5-10 minutes to provide information about mental health resources on and off campus.
  • Counselor supportive virtual visit: Invite a counselor for a 20-30 minute visit with your class, meeting, or a student group. We will provide information about common concerns related to current events, wellness strategies and information about mental health resources. There will be an opportunity for participants to ask questions.

Consultation with a counselor for faculty/staff to talk about supporting student mental health:

Choose from 2 options:

  • One to one: Schedule a conversation with a CMHC counselor about how to support student mental health and well-being.
  • Group: Schedule a CMHC Counselor to visit your virtual staff/faculty meeting to provide information about supporting student mental health and well-being.

We're here for you.    We recognize that many UT students are being impacted by historical and recent events. The CMHC holds firm to the university‚Äôs values and commitment to diversity and inclusion. Our staff are here to help students navigate through these times. Click here to learn about our resources.
