/updated 03-26-20/: All services at the Department of Student Health and Wellness are now being provided remotely, including Medical Services (Primary Care and Gynecology), CAPS, SDAC and Health Promotion. Our providers continue to be available to provide care to you even though the building is closed due to COVID-19. We encourage you to use our services, even if you have returned home. We can help relieve the strain on other healthcare resources that are so limited at this unprecedented time. If we cannot meet your needs, we can direct you to community resources. Please call (434) 924-5362 to access services via phone, telemedicine, or email. Appointments cannot be scheduled online at this time. Our remote services remain available Monday-Friday, 8am-4:30pm. If you have an after-hours urgent care need, please contact the after-hour number at (434) 297-4261.
Student Health and Wellness Coronavirus Guidelines
Student Health and Wellness COVID-19 guidelines are being updated on a regular basis.
Feeling Stressed about Coronavirus?
Please visit our COVID-19 well-being resources page, and take a look at this helpful handout that provides concrete strategies to address stress and anxiety. In addition, SilverCloud is a free online mental health tool that can help students develop skills for managing stress, anxiety, sleep, and depression. It can be accessed 24 hours/day, 7 days/week.
Counseling and Psychological Services
All CAPS appointments will be conducted remotely to make it easier for students to obtain care while sheltering in place. CAPS remains available to all students for support, referral assistance and crisis services. If you need help during this time call (434) 243-5150 to speak with a counselor.
- If you have an existing onsite appointment scheduled at CAPS, a provider will call you via a phone call at your scheduled appointment time. Please make sure you have your phone with you and are in a location where you can easily speak to the clinician at the scheduled time. Please also check your email regularly for updates.
- If you need to cancel your appointment, please email CAPS at firstname.lastname@example.org or locate your provider here and email them directly.
- SilverCloud is an immediate, online, confidential mental health tool that is available for free to UVA students through CAPS.
If you need primary or gynecologic care, call 434-924-5362 to discuss telemedicine appointments, referrals, prescription refills, etc. Please consider limiting your in-person care in your communities. If you feel you need to access in-person care, call your provider first to receive guidance on when or if you should come to their clinic. If you need to pick up medication, consider accessing a pharmacy with a drive through window and/or delivery services.
Office of Health Promotion (OHP)
If you need an appointment for nutritional services, would like to make a WahooWell Remote appointment, or you're in recovery and want to connect with our collegiate recovery program community, please call (434) 924-1509.
- WahooWell Remote is offering 30-60 minute well-being sessions to help students develop a plan to thrive during this transition period. In addition, we can help to explore specific concerns related to well-being, including self-care, sleep issues, low-level stress, and substance use. Please sign up here if you would like to talk with someone to address well-being topics such as:
- Adjusting to a new living environment and creating opportunities for growth in a new setting
- Leveraging strengths and past successes to reduce stress and tackling new expectations that come with online classes, being home, and social distancing
- Exploring what well-being and self-care look like between now and when we return to Grounds
Student Disability Access Center (SDAC)
