Services Available to All Students

UHS 24/7 Crisis Line: For students in crisis, it is highly encouraged for you to contact our crisis line to be assessed, make plans for immediate support, and be referred to appropriate services. Crisis situations may include: intense thoughts of harming self or others, making plans or taking steps towards harming self or others, recently experiencing a traumatic event including hate/bias/discrimination, making choices that put them in immediate danger (e.g. alcohol or drug use, eating issues), hearing or seeing things others do not, going without sleep for two or more days, or having been recently discharged from a psychiatric hospital. Students with these experiences should not wait for the next available Access appointment and instead receive immediate assessment and support through our 24-hour crisis line: (608)265-5600 (option 9)

Group Counseling: Our group therapy offerings continue to be popular.  Students can self-refer and do not need an Access appointment to be referred to a group. Instead, you can or log on to MyUHS to web-book or call our front desk directly during business hours at 608-265-5600 (option 2).   Our groups cover a variety of topic areas, types of support, and communities served. For a full list of groups and descriptions, visit the Group Counseling webpage.Drop-In Groups: MHS offers a variety of groups this spring that students can drop into without committing to the full semester. These are great options for students wanting to experience community, get support, and learn skills to manage a variety of concerns.
