WLU pilots mental health app

May 10, 2018

Wilfrid Laurier University has partnered with a private company to develop and pilot an app that provides digital therapy for students who struggle with mental health issues, the Waterloo Region Record states. According to Laurier VP of Student Affairs David McMurray, the pilot was offered to a target group of students over the winter semester, and the university will reportedly invest in the service if the pilot sees continued use. “We have to be more proactive,” said McMurray, who explained that mental health is the next priority after teaching, learning, and research.
