Veterans Services

Telehealth Counseling

The UTRGV-VA Telehealth Counseling program is a partnership between the Veterans Administration Texas Valley Coastal Bend Health Care System and The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley. It is designed to enhance student veteran access to VA Behavioral Health services by providing students the option to “meet” with the practitioner without leaving the UTRGV campus. It utilizes a secure online system that keeps the information private and protected.

To take advantage of this service, the student needs to be enrolled for VA care.



To enroll for VA care or to arrange to start Telehealth Counseling services, contact: Mr. Giovanni Gonzalez (VA Telemental Health Program Support Assistant) at (956) 618-7100 x67134.

For additional questions or for special accommodations, contact the UTRGV Counseling Center at (956) 665-2574.
