August 21, 2023 – Santa Fe College recognizes the critical need for expanded support of student mental health and well-being. As a result, the college is announcing a number of new resources for students to access the care they need to succeed in advancing their education, and to empower students to confidently navigate their own health journey.
SF has partnered with TimelyCare, the premier virtual health and wellbeing solution in higher education, to serve as a 24/7 virtual extension of campus health and counseling center resources. Students can access the TimelyCare platform from their phone or other device at any time for free, on-demand medical care and mental health support from licensed physicians and counselors in all 50 states. TimelyCare also provides an expansive library of self-guided resources and a peer support community to help students be well and thrive, whenever and wherever they may be.
“The mental and physical health of our students is vital, and essential to their academic success,” SF President Paul Broadie II said. “This technology empowers our students to prioritize their health and wellbeing. The services TimelyCare provides will make it easier than ever for our students to access the support and care they need, when they need it. This support will benefit them now, and will help set them on a course of physical and mental wellness throughout their lives.”
TimelyCare will replace the college’s Student Health Care Center, and give SF students 24/7 access to care, through the TimelyCare app.
Faculty and staff can utilize flyers and other information provided by TimelyCare through SF’s photo portal at https://sfcollege.photoshelter.com/galleries/C0000bCYdVEq2R7M/TimelyCare-Telehealth-Resources.
