Make a Counseling Appointment

The University of Wisconsin–Madison and WSB mental health counseling services are free.

To schedule an appointment with WSB’s mental health provider, Dr. Julie Phillips:

  1. call 608-265-5600 and select option 2
  2. explain you are an undergraduate business student and ask to schedule an appointment
  3. you will receive confirmation of the scheduled appointment

All appointments include a safe and confidential environment to help you overcome any hurdles interfering with your well-being and academics. As an undergraduate business student, you bypass the initial access appointment and can directly schedule services with WSB’s embedded counselor.

WSB Let’s Talk

Participate in these free, 20-minute, confidential drop-in consultations.

No topic is off-limits. Common concerns include stress, sadness, worry, relationships, academics, family, and financial struggles. Walk away with tools, support, and additional resources to help you overcome your obstacles.

  • First come, first served with no registration needed
  • From 1–3 p.m. Wednesdays in Grainger 3081

Virtual consultation

  • First come, first served with no registration needed

This is not a substitute for ongoing counseling and is not mental health treatment.
