WellTrack Self-Help Interactive Therapy Informed Consent
Thank you for your interest in participating in WellTrack self-help interactive therapy program through the Florida State University Counseling & Psychological Services. This informed consent form is to give you information about WellTrack services.
WellTrack is a web-based and interactive program that provides you with the skills and tools to help address issues related to anxiety and depression. This program also teaches healthy coping skills.
WellTrack is not traditional therapy in that you will not have an ongoing therapeutic relationship with a mental health professional, but it provides resources that can be helpful to students. Counseling & Psychological Services and/or its staff will not be reviewing the information you provide on WellTrack. WellTrack is an outside vendor that has licensed Counseling & Psychological Services to provide access to these resources.
WellTrack is an interactive program for your own use. Below is a list of responsibilities for individuals who participate in WellTrack:
- All modules are available for use.
- Typically with self-guided programs, the more you put into the program and learning the material, the more you will get out of it. It is usually helpful to dedicate time each week to work through WellTrack modules. Modules include completing exercises, watching videos, and completing logs.
- If WellTrack is not meeting your needs, your needs change, or symptoms worsen, it is your responsibility to seek mental health services. Counseling & Psychological Services is available for walk-in Monday through Friday 8:00AM - 4:00 PM, and after hours by calling 850-644-TALK (8255).
Enrolled FSU students are eligible to participate in WellTrack. You will need a computer and internet connection. In addition, it is helpful to have a tablet or smart phone for easy access to the material homework. While WellTrack is very effective and well-liked by most users, some people do not feel comfortable with the technology.
