Aria Armstrong, Kesha Perkins started this petition to Boston University Behavioral Health Services

Currently, BU students can only make Behavioral Health Services (BHS) appointments via phone call. I was feeling stuck at one point in my BU career and thought that therapy would be beneficial, but I was hesitant to call and would have preferred to book an online appointment. I thought I was the only one who felt this way until I heard similar reservations from my friends. Through these conversations I realized that calling BHS is a barrier for seeking treatment, so my colleagues and I are petitioning for online booking to make BHS resources more accessible for students. With this petition, we plan to have a discussion with BHS representatives about ways to increase access to their services. Any stories shared in filling out this petition will be de-identified and may be used to promote our campaign. Thank you for your support!
