All enrolled OU students in need of or simply interested in services to improve their mental health and genearl well-being can now benefit from free access to mental health crisis response services being made available 24 hours a day, seven days a week through Uwill Student Mental Health and Wellness.

The organization has partnered with Oakland to provide confidential, secure and private services that will not a replace an existing and well-established range of mental health services on campus but, rather, compliment them.

Students facing a mental health emergency at any time should call Uwill’s crisis connection line at (833) 646-1526. For medical emergencies, students should call 911.

Uwill also offers free access to on-demand wellness programs through an easy-to-use online platform. Yoga, meditation and mindfulness coaching are among a wide array of programs available. These can help students discover greater focus and balance, as well as serve as a great compliment to therapy!

Students are encouraged to explore and tap into Uwill program and service information. Faculty and staff are encouraged to refer students who need mental health assistance to the Uwill crisis connection line.

For questions about the implementation and management of Uwill for Oakland University, those interested should contact Dave Schwartz, director of the OU Counseling Center, at [email protected].

Oakland University's many health and well-being programs and services are offered through the OU Counseling Center, the Graham Health Center, the School of Education and Human Services Counseling Center, and extensive well-being and outreach initiatives provided by University Recreation and Well-Being.
