LMU Partners with WellConnect to Offer Remote Mental Health Counseling


Lincoln Memorial University (LMU) is pleased to announce a partnership with WellConnect to provide remote mental health counseling and other services to students. This added offering allows the LMU counseling office to serve students completing the semester online across the country and around the world.


“For many, college was challenging enough without the added stress of dealing with a world pandemic turning our routines upside down,” said Jason Kishpaugh, LPC-MHSP, Director of the LMU counseling office. “Now we have made getting help more convenient for our students.”


WellConnect links students with licensed counselors for up to five confidential sessions per semester. Services include free, 24/7 counseling, even on holidays, provided in the way most convenient for the student: chat, telephone, text, of live video. WellConnect, through its website or app, can provide referrals for local resources, daily living needs, utilities and child care, as well as expert consultations for finances, legal needs and life. Articles, assessments, calculators, videos and other resources are also available to help students with their daily well-being.


Students living in Tennessee and Kentucky still have access to LMU counselors through teleconferencing and can continue to make appointments on the scheduling calendar on the LMU website at https://www.lmunet.edu/counseling/schedule-an-appointment.php
