Counslr, the text-based mental health support mobile app, announced its partnership with Aptitude Development, a national student housing organization, to provide student residents access to on-demand mental health support. The partnership launched with East Coast housing facility locations, and will expand nationwide over the course of 2024.

“Aptitude has always tried to be on the forefront of providing wellness focused amenities to support students' well-being beyond academic endeavors,” said Jared Hutter, Co-founder & Principal at Aptitude Development. “We believe it's our mission to provide exceptional and meaningful benefits to those living in our communities. We are proud to offer our residents, today’s students, Counslr as an extremely convenient and accessible resource for mental health support and overall well-being.”

Student Housing On-Demand Mental Health Support

Access to the app, which provides on-demand mental health support 24/7/365, will be included with and considered as an amenity for the residents. The partnership launched with the following three student housing facility locations, and will roll out nationwide later this year:

  • The Marshall, serving Rochester Institute of Technology students
  • The Ithaca, serving Ithaca College and Cornell University students
  • The Pier, serving Coastal Carolina University students

“We are looking forward to working with Aptitude Development to support these students as they head to school and work, and know that mental health help is accessible easily,” said Josh Liss, CEO and Founder of Counslr. “Mental health truly knows no boundaries. We hope to be a resource for students at any point of the day, all while knowing that their home away from home is focused on their overall well-being.”
