Mental Health Support for UTM Students

SamDumcum Uncategorized Leave a Comment

Mental health matters, and startups in ICUBE are working to make mental health support more accessible to UTM students.

Did you know students have access to $2500 to see a private therapist, using student union health insurance?
80% of students surveyed didn’t know about this mental health coverage!

LinkMe (a startup in ICUBE) connects students to a therapist that best fit their needs, with no referrals needed or wait times involved. If you’re looking to speak to someone who comes from a specific background, ethnicity, sexual orientation and other important factors, then consider using linkme.care. Finding help should be easy, and we’re here to help with that.

Call for Volunteers:
Have you searched for a therapist online, or considered it? LinkMe is trying to improve the process and better understand student’s needs. All it’ll take is a 15 minute anonymous phone call. If you’re interested in helping them out, check out this link for more details.

LinkMe celebrates World Mental Health Day (October 10, 2018)
We would like to thank our partners for making the campaign a great success. Hundreds in the GTA participated in the #TorontoDoesTherapy campaign, where we encouraged the community to speak more openly about the idea of going to see a therapist. While mental health and self-care are topics that we talk about a lot more (which is great!), seeing a therapist was less spoken of. Whether for treatment or for proactive self-care, we wanted to normalize the conversation around seeking therapy and we were grateful to everyone who participated. For every signature, LinkMe donated 5 cents towards covering the cost of therapy for someone who can’t access it. Look out for our future campaigns at @LinkMentalHealth on all social media platforms.
