CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- The University of Virginia is going to roll out free mental health services for students on Monday.

According to a release, UVA has partnered with TimelyMD, a leading telehealth company that specializes in higher education.

Any student who paid the comprehensive health fee will be able to access the service, called TimelyCare.

They will be prompted to download an app and they will have around-the-clock services available.

The release says students will get 12 free scheduled telehealth visits with a licensed mental health provider annually, either in Virginia or the rest of the country.

This is part of the arrangement between TimelyMD and UVA's Counseling and Psychological Services.

This comes as there has been increasing demand for services in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Nicole Ruzek, the director of Counseling and Psychological Services, says there are three basic components to the platform: scheduled counseling visits for all eligible students, an on-demand service called TalkNow, and psychiatric care.
