Timely Care

Student Health and Wellbeing Services are partnering with a supplemental telehealth service called TimelyCare to broaden our reach. This means medical and mental health services will be available no matter where you live within the U.S. and will extend into the periods when Humboldt's Student Health & Wellbeing Services (SHWS) are closed, particularly helpful during the long winter and summer breaks.
