Additional mental health resources available to students

Under the student health insurance plan, OHIO students, including international students and students outside the state of Ohio, now have access to additional mental health resources.

Ohio University students can now access expanded mental health resources through the student health insurance plan. The student health insurance is provided by United HealthCare Student Resources (UHCSR). Services are widespread and available for access by phone or video from anywhere. Students are able to receive care for mental health and general medical needs from a predetermined list of UHCSR providers. These providers are different from the university Campus Care providers.

Services are available to international students and those outside the state of Ohio. UHCSR services are available to all students enrolled in the University student health insurance policy at no additional charge. Students that are NOT enrolled in the University student health insurance can also utilize these resources; however, they will be charged a fee for doing so each time they access the services.
