Counslr App Offers Mental Health Support to Students

Counslr is a text-based mental health support application that provides unlimited access to live texting sessions with licensed professionals, 24/7/365. Users can access support on-demand within two minutes of opening the app, or by scheduled appointment. Through real-time texting, users enjoy one-on-one, private communication with a licensed counselor that can be conducted anytime, anywhere. Counslr was designed to help individuals deal with life’s day-to-day issues, empowering individuals to address concerns while they are “small” to help ensure that they stay “small”. Counslr partners with organizations of all shapes and sizes (companies, unions, nonprofits, universities/colleges, high schools, etc) so that these entities can provide Counslr’s services to their employees/members/students at no direct cost.

Counslr announced at the end of May 2024 that it has expanded its support into the State of Rhode Island through a partnership with the Bristol Warren Regional School District. The partnership rolled out to first focus on access to the Counslr app for the more than 500 faculty members, which includes unlimited texting sessions with Counslr’s licensed and vetted mental health support professionals, available on-demand. Students will soon have access to the app at the start of the new 2024-25 school year.

“The need is great, and we are thrilled to begin working toward a solution with the Counslr team. As we see a continued rise in the need for mental health support, we are fully embracing the opportunities that Counslr provides for both our faculty and students,” said Ana Riley, Superintendent of Schools for the Bristol Warren Regional School District. “Mental health support is something we all could benefit from, no matter who we are – students or faculty – and having access to Counslr’s 24/7/365 platform can indeed be the resource so many can access when they most need to.” The Counslr app was rolled out to all faculty in the District as part of Teacher Appreciation Week, and by the beginning of the next school year all students in the middle and high schools will also have access to the app.

“We are thrilled to expand into Rhode Island and help faculty, and soon students as well, as they prioritize mental health and the well-being of the school district as a whole,” said Josh Liss, CEO and co-founder of Counslr. “Working with school districts has become a primary focus for the company, as we aim to help communities across the country prioritize their well-being. We are grateful to leaders such as those in the Bristol Warren Regional School District who embrace the challenge and seek solutions to help their community.”
