Off Campus Counseling Services

At times, our services may not meet a student's individual needs or students may prefer to see a counselor off-campus. Listed Below are a few off-campus counseling resources that have worked well with Gustavus students in the past.

Are you on the Gustavus Student Health Insurance plan? Do you have a health insurance plan through UnitedHealthcare? If so, you qualify for free mental health therapy, psychiatry, and general medical care via telehealth through HealthiestYou. Follow these links (A) and (B) for further information.
