COVID-19

Updated: 7/30/2022

We hope you are staying healthy and as connected as you can to those who help you feel supported in these unprecedented times. Please read the following page so that we can help keep everyone safe at this time.

Our services may change time from time, but this is the best place for updates on our services. 

Initial appointments are all held in person at the Carruth Center.  Fall 2022 group counseling will also be held in person.  Telehealth options are available after initial appointment if Telehealth is preferred and clinically indicdated.      

We ask that everyone wear a mask while they are in the building and meeting with our staff. 

Before coming into the building we ask that you do a self health screening.  If you are experiencing any symptoms or have recently been exposed to COVID 19, please call (304)293-4431 to discuss options for your upcoming appointment.    

Please understand we want to protect our ability to serve students in need of mental health resources and to do that, we must constantly evaluate the best practices for health care settings.  

Service Updates

Students not back on the Morgantown Campus

Due to licensing restrictions, Carruth Center’s counselors are unable to provide care to students who are outside of West Virginia and outside of Morgantown. If you are not near Morgantown, but want to talk with a counselor, please call in and we can talk to you about treatment options.  Talkspace, an online therapy service that connects users to a dedicated, licensed therapist,  is available at no cost for all West Virginia University students (WVU Morgantown, WVU Tech, WVU Potomac State and WVU Online).

If you would like assistance arranging care with a provider in your hometown, call  304-293-4431 and ask to speak with a care manager.
