The following services are available for all currently enrolled MIU students.

MIU supports mental health for all of its community, not just our students! All resources below are available for staff and faculty unless designated as "students only."

1:1 Support Session

1:1 support sessions are no-pressure consultations where you meet with our licensed counselor individually. Sessions can be in person, on teams/zoom, or over the phone, whichever you prefer.  1:1 sessions are a chance for us to hear what is going on for you and discuss resources that might be helpful for you. Sessions are always free and confidential.

To schedule a session, email Clint Cunningham at Clint is available for same-day sessions if you email him by 2pm CST.

Individual Therapy via META

META is an online teletherapy resource specifically designed for college campuses. META is an app that you download to your phone and allows you to shop for your therapist (rather than be matched with a therapist like with Betterhelp) and offers free consultations. META also curates mental health articles specifically for colleges via their BUZZ section. 

To access META, simply download the app from google play or apple store, then sign in using your email address. That's it! Everything is in your hands - who you meet with, when you meet, and how you pay. Everything is confidential, even MIU doesn't see who uses the app. 

Our Life and Wellness Coaching program connects MIU-affiliated life and wellness coaches with students. Coaches help you identify a vision for your wellness, become aware, clear, and aligned with why you really want to reach your personal wellness goals, and then help you get there.
