Student Assistance Program

Walden University is pleased to announce the expansion of our wellness resources to include free 1:1 counseling. Beginning immediately, you can schedule three virtual or in-person sessions with a licensed counselor per household member, per concern at no charge to you through our Student Assistance Program (SAP) provider ComPsych. Finding balance in managing the demands of work, family and school can be a struggle and Walden is committed to holistically supporting our students whenever possible. It has never been more challenging – or more important – for all of us to make our mental health and wellness a top priority.

Call ComPsych anytime about concerns such as marital, relationship and family problems; stress, anxiety, and depression; grief and loss; job pressures; or substance abuse. All communications are strictly confidential.

To initiate your three sessions with a licensed counselor, please call ComPsych using Walden’s dedicated line 24/7 (1-866-465-8942)/ (TDD: 1-800-697-0353) International: (1-312-595-0074).
