GRAND RAPIDS, MI — In response to the growing need for mental health services for students, Davenport University recently announced it has expanded its offerings with Pine Rest Christian Mental Health Services on all campuses.
“In response to student needs, we’re launching a new partnership with Pine Rest to offer all Davenport University students – regardless of their home campus – one-on-one confidential counseling services free of charge,” President Richard Pappas said in an Oct. 1 press release.
The increased mental health offerings with Pine Rest include free, confidential counseling to students – including same-day support. This new service is at no additional cost to students, as it is built into the cost of tuition.
Pine Rest is offering fall semester counseling exclusively through teletherapy. The university expects to continue onsite appointments at their W.A. Lettinga Campus in January or once social distancing requirements are lifted.
