Preparing for Telemental Health Appointments

Counseling Services uses Zoom as a HIPAA compliant video-conferencing tool. There is no cost to the student to access Zoom. You simply need a device with a camera and secure internet access. To utilize our T.M.H. services, we will also need your permission to contact you via phone and email.

  1. You will receive an email reminder two days in advance of your appointment with detailed instructions explaining the required paperwork that will need to be completed the day of your appointment.
  2. On the day of your appointment, you will log into the forms portal to complete required forms at least 30 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time.
  3. Your counselor will send an email with a link and instructions to access the private Zoom counseling room. Once your forms are completed and reviewed, your clinician admit you into the counseling room to begin the session.
