IntelliCare for College Students

IntelliCare for College Students is an app-based program to help university students prioritize self-care and connect them with appropriate mental health and wellness resources. This program was developed as part of a collaboration between Northwestern University, the University of Illinois at Chicago and Northern Illinois University.  It built upon the IntelliCare platform of apps and was developed in conjunction with stakeholders from the university student communities of interest. Once developed, this program was tested in a single-arm pilot study and is currently being rolled out more broadly on both campuses. The impact of the program on student mental health and college counseling center utilization will be examined. 

The PI is Emily Lattie, PhD.
