Student Behavioral Resources

At WVSOM, we care about each member of our community, and we want all of our students to be successful.

WVSOM meets the needs of students for confidential resources for behavioral healthcare services on a 24 hour per day 7 days a week ("24/7") basis. 

During regular business hours, 8:00am – 4:30pm, Monday through Friday,  students can contact or visit the ASPIRE office (

Quad A-420
(304) 647-6324

People don’t always ask for the help that they need. If you are concerned about a friend or a classmate, don’t hesitate to reach out to help get them to the resources that they need. 

If someone is in immediate danger, dial 911. 

For confidential assistance, contact ASPIRE. 

After hours and on weekends

  • To be connected with the ASPIRE counselors and/or WVSOM faculty who are on-call, students can call (304) 520-5856.

If you wish to discuss a Title IX-related concern with someone who can keep this information confidential, please call the Family Refuge Center at (304) 645-6334.
