All services will be offered virtually through the 2020-2021 academic year.
All mental health services will be delivered via distance tele-mental health. Due to limitations with state laws regarding licensure, students who are residing outside of the State of Iowa will have limited access to tele-mental health counseling.
Virtual group opportunities are available to students both in and out of the State of Iowa during the COVID-19 response. All groups are accessed using videoconferencing services. All current group offerings are considered outreach services and are peer support groups or provide basic psychoeducation. Changes in our group structure have been made in order to better serve Luther students both in and out of Iowa while adhering to state licensure laws. Current group offerings can be found here.
