A recent study by the NCAA has found some alarming results regarding student athletes. When it comes to student mental health during the COVID-19 pandemic, there were responses that indicate more significant support needs to be provided to students and student athletes, to ensure their well-being is higher than it currently is.
Student mental health is suffering during the COVID-19 pandemic. A significant plurality of both men and women have been feeling overwhelmed, have difficulty sleeping, feel mentally exhausted, and feel lonely. These are significant issues currently affecting students, which can result in severe consequences for their academic and athletic lives.
Given the self-isolation that has been mandated in virtually every part of the country at one point during the pandemic, a large number of students are feeling the repercussions of that isolation. Thankfully, telemedicine can act as a path to better mental health during these challenging times.
CoMediCard is a new telemedicine-for-students product that was specifically designed with college and university students in mind. Thanks to this product, students everywhere have the ability to receive 24/7 access to a licensed US physician. Students who are studying abroad within the US can also receive the help they need in their native language.
CoMediCard helps in three major areas: primary care, dermatology, and mental health. Thanks to an exclusive partnership with Teladoc, colleges and universities across the nation have already started benefitting from services that assist individuals exposed to COVID-19.
Communication is available 24/7 with qualified professionals, from the comfort of a student’s dorm or apartment. This unprecedented access ensures students get the help they need. Telemedicine for students should not break the bank, yet still offer quality support.
CoMediCard is associated with 90 Degree Benefits, owned by Blue Cross Blue Shield Alabama, making this a new, yet verified, method of providing essential mental health services to students and student athletes who need it, while doing so at an affordable price.
Teladoc and CoMediCard want to do their part in providing solutions to the massive challenges facing students in these difficult times. Providing inexpensive 24/7 mental health support is one major way they are doing just that.
