Christie Campus Health, the leading provider of mental health and well-being support services to colleges and universities, and MindWise Innovations, an award-winning service of Riverside Community Care that provides evidence-based mental health and substance use services to schools, organizations, and mental health professionals, are proud to announce a partnership.

The collaboration will provide colleges and universities with a comprehensive mental health support system that augments and enhances existing on campus clinical resources.

“MindWise is proud to partner with Christie Campus Health as we expand our efforts to support college student mental health,” said Lisa K. Desai, Psy.D., Chief Behavioral Health Officer, MindWise Innovations. “We know that while mental health concerns continue to rise among college students, accessing resources remains a challenge. Christie Campus Health’s suite of services including in-the-moment contact with a clinician, therapy options, and self-guided wellness tools have demonstrated benefits. At MindWise Innovations, we provide expertise in suicide prevention, trauma response, and behavioral health education to support the campus population in times of crisis, and through individual and systemic change. Together, Christie Campus Health and MindWise Innovations will continue our mission to promote well-being and resilience during the formative college years.”
