- Associates for Psychiatric and Mental Health— This resource is an outstanding opportunity for nursing students who wish to have a medical evaluation for mental health support. Therapy and medication can received through trained and licensed professionals who offer both simultaneously. APMH offers a free consultation service for students to explore what is best for their care. Insurance will be billed for APMH services unless the student makes other arrangements with a provider. APMH offers virtual and in-person treatment options.
- Portland students are always welcome to book online through the WWU Counseling page for a virtual consultation with a mental health professional. Students on all WWU Campuses are able to access this resource up to three times a year. This is an opportunity to talk through available resources and options for engaging in mental health support.
