Universities replace face-to-face sessions with online counseling
The growing demand for mental health services by Texas college students is forcing some universities to look for ways to replace time-consuming face-to-face sessions with online counseling.
The story appears in the Texas Tribune.
The online program reportedly cuts the time each student receives from a counselor by 70 percent.
Texas A&M University, the University of North Texas and Baylor University hope the online service will help reach more students.
