Labouré College of Healthcare based in Boston Massachusetts is the latest institute to launch TalkCampus, to provide their students with confidential, round-the-clock support wherever they are in the world.
With TalkCampus, students have free access to instant, ongoing peer support via their smartphones within a familiar and intuitive network. While traditional support services have a vital role to play for student mental health, online peer support plays a powerful role for upstream, early, and ongoing intervention.
“It is never easy talking about our feelings, what stresses us out, and wondering who will "get" what you are talking about. TalkCampus is designed to connect you with other students who may be going through the same thing when you want or need to talk about it.” - Matthew Gregory Asst. Vice President for Student Affairs & Chief Title IX Coordinator
One of the key features of TalkCampus that resonated with the Labouré team, is the real-time escalation, which ensures that students who are at a higher level of risk get the support they need. In addition, is its ability to embed a university's student services directly within the app, ensuring students know exactly what support is available to them and how to access this.
“Student life can have times of stress, anxiety and uncertainty, and Covid 19 has only amplified these challenges for many students. We know the positive impact having a safe place to talk about your struggles can have and we are very excited to be able to provide this for Labouré College students. Talking about your mental health isn’t easy but we’ve designed TalkCampus to make those first steps as familiar, intuitive and accessible as possible.” - Jennifer Russell, Clinical Director at TalkCampus.
TalkCampus is a 24/7 global peer support network for students. Supporting over 500,000 students worldwide with real-time moderation and escalation. If you would like to explore how TalkCampus can support your students we’d love to hear from you. Book a Demo - https://www.talkcampus.io
