WELCOME TO THE UWSP COUNSELING CENTER
College is an exciting and challenging time that brings both expected and unexpected stressors. These stressors can have a profound effect on a student’s quality of life and academic performance. The UWSP Counseling Center is committed to helping students get the most from their college experience. We use diverse, but proven approaches to enhance students’ social, emotional, and developmental well-being. The Counseling Center is staffed with licensed mental health professionals dedicated to assisting students as they navigate difficult circumstances or resolve personal concerns.
The Counseling Center adheres to a brief model of
therapy in which students can be seen for up to 20 individual sessions over the
course of their degree. Our staff works with each student to determine the most
clinically appropriate referral based on their presenting concerns.
The Counseling Center is fully committed to consulting with and educating the greater UWSP community in areas of mental health and emotional functioning. We meet regularly with faculty, staff, and students about students of concern and we often implement education, training and prevention programming that addresses student mental health and emotional well-being.
The Counseling Center respects and appreciates individual differences and cultural diversity. Therapists at the UWSP Counseling Center work collaboratively with students to promote positive changes in a manner consistent with the student’s own values and worldview. The UWSP Counseling Center is sensitive to the uniqueness that arises from different backgrounds, sexual orientations and gender identities, financial resources, religious affiliations, family circumstances, veteran statuses and levels of ability.
Therapy and consultation services are free of charge for registered students. Consultation services are available free of charge for faculty and staff.
A NOTE ON COUNSELING CENTER
DEMAND: NOVEMBER 2015
Demand for psychotherapy services at the UWSP
Counseling Center is currently very high. The Counseling
Center staff is working on a daily basis to address each client’s individual
needs, manage on-campus emergencies and responsibly address a rapidly growing
waitlist for services.
Please be advised that students who are newly
placed on the waitlist may experience a moderate wait for their initial
outside provider might be able to meet your immediate needs more quickly than the staff
of the Counseling Center at this time. A list of local providers is provided at the bottom of this page. Each can provide information about their
fees and participation in various insurance networks.

urgent mental health needs, the UWSP Counseling Center continues to maintain an
