 WATERTOWN, SD – META Teletherapy provides students with confidential and easy access to a nationwide network of licensed providers. Lake Area Technical College, an accredited institution in South Dakota, has become the latest school to implement META’s student wellness program.

Lake Area Technical College students can now access a marketplace of counselors through META’s mobile app. Students connect to a counselor of their choice for chat, voice, and video sessions. Students download the app, choose a provider, and receive counseling through the privacy and convenience of their smart phones. Students will have the care and support they need to overcome issues such as stress, anxiety, depression, and academic burnout.

 META allows users to filter therapists by specialty, view provider video bios, and send chat messages before receiving counseling. Providers on META’s network are available days, evenings, and weekends all year long to fit a flexible student schedule.

 About META: META is the nation’s first teletherapy platform built specifically for college students. META offers real-time, video counseling with licensed mental health professionals from the privacy of an Android or Apple smartphone.
