Student Health Services
SHS is a great place to start to learn more about depression and start the process of getting help. All services are confidential, and appointments can be made for Monday – Friday. Initial counseling appointments must be made via phone, but subsequent appointments may be made through the SHS online portal. See shs.wustl.edu for pamphlets, insurance information, counselor biographies, and more. The first 9 counseling sessions are free and subsequent visits (limited to 15 each school year) will have a copay as determined by the student’s insurance company.
