Current students are able to add dependents onto their university health insurance plan. However, dependents are not able to utilize the Student Health Center or Counseling Center, even when using university insurance as these services are limited to current students. Alternative health resources for dependents are listed below, and remember to check your health insurance plan and coverage with these resources before making an appointment.

The GW University Community Counseling Clinic provides mental health services to adults, adolescents, and children in the Washington, D.C., area who may otherwise not have access to needed care. These services include individual, couples, family, and group psychotherapy, as well as psychological assessment.
The mission of The Women’s Center is to significantly improve the psychological, career, financial and legal well-being of women, men and their families, regardless of their ability to pay. The Center offers immediate and affordable counseling, accepts most insurance plans and fees are based on financial need.
The Pro Bono Counseling Project (PBCP) ensures that Maryland families and individuals with limited resources in need of mental health care are linked with licensed mental health professionals who provide care on a volunteer basis at no cost.
