The Southern University Law Center is announcing the launch of a mental health app for students called "META."
SULC says the teletherapy app offers mobile counseling services to students so they can gain easy access to mental health providers.
According to officials with SULC, students can download the free app, select a provider, and get counseling from the privacy of their phones through messaging, video, or voice calls.
Sessions can be paid for with a credit card or insurance.
The new app comes after a report from the American College Health Association showed that college students are struggling more and more with stress, anxiety, and depression than ever before.
