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 options 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 to assist with concerning situations and we often provide 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. Counseling Center staff are 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.
