In an effort to decrease missed appointments, Habif Health and Wellness Center at Washington University in St. Louis is encouraging students to sign up for text message appointment reminders.
Last year, there were 1,555 missed mental health appointments, the equivalent of 1.5 full-time staff members. Students who must cancel an appointment are urged to give 24 hours’ notice. To opt in for text message reminders, visit the Habif Health and Wellness Center website.
