Lincoln College Partners with TalkCampus to Support Student Mental Health
Lincoln College in Lincoln, Illinois has partnered with TalkCampus, providing students with access to mental health support 24 hours a day. With TalkCampus, Lincoln students will have access to a global peer support that is professionally moderated within a safe, supportive infrastructure.
Lincoln College will receive quarterly, de-identified reports that highlight current usage patterns and key trends across their student population. Additionally, TalkCampus has real-time escalation processes if a situation becomes urgent.
“Lincoln College looks forward to providing additional mental health support to students on campus through the TalkCampus platform. TalkCampus allows our institution to better serve students facing mental health challenges, particularly during hours when campus is closed.” - Lincoln College
Online peer support plays a powerful role for upstream, early, and ongoing intervention and the platform will complement and work seamlessly alongside Lincoln College’s existing student support services. The app is specifically customised for students with all Lincoln College’s student services embedded within the application. Students will be able to talk with students all around the globe, while having support options specific to their needs and place of study.
“Student life has changed significantly over the past 2 years and there have been huge repercussions for students. Traditional counselling can feel intimidating for some students, and so having a place where they can come together with other students around the world and share their ups and downs can be a very powerful tool and is a wonderful addition to Lincoln’s existing support services. We’re delighted to welcome Lincoln to the platform and look forward to supporting their students. ” - Jennifer Russell, Clinical Director at TalkCampus.
