Colleges turn to technology for counseling outreach - Jarrett Carter, Education Dive

Inside Higher Ed profiles the growth of technology in campus mental health and counseling sectors allowing student contact through online chat and mobile app platforms, which in the last two years, has grown by more than 9%. As demand increases and more students grow comfortable with seeking mental health support, observers say technology is an ideal way to begin the process of outreach and determining appropriate treatment or guidance for students. Colorado State University has implemented a search engine platform which allows students to look up information about mental, physical health issues and to connect with campus resources for their specific needs. http://www.educationdive.com/news/colleges-turn-to-technology-for-counseling-outreach/428702/
