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 psychotherapy 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.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT COUNSELING CENTER APPOINTMENTS: APRIL/MAY 2018
Demand for psychotherapy services at the UWSP Counseling Center is currently very high. The Counseling Center staff is using all available resources to address each client's individual needs, manage on-campus emergencies and responsibly address the existing waitlist for services.
Please be advised that students who are newly placed on the waitlist may not be able to be seen before the conclusion of the semester, and may be best served by seeking off-campus resources and mental health providers. An outside provider might be able to meet your needs more quickly than the staff of the Counseling Center at this time. Each can provide information about their fees and participation in various insurance networks. A list of local providers is provided at the bottom of this page.
In order to be responsive to students with urgent mental health needs, the UWSP Counseling Center continues to maintain an on-call professional from 8:00am to 4:30pm, Monday through Friday. If you are experiencing a crisis, emergency evaluation services remain available.
