Mental Health Counseling

It is well documented that healthy students are more prepared to learn. The entire focus of the mental health program at UWMC is to reinforce healthy behaviors and reach out to students who may be experiencing difficulties.

Anonymous Mental Health Screening Tool

The UWMC counseling staff welcomes you to take the free online screening for eating disorders, alcohol issues, anxiety disorders, and depression. The screening is provided so that you may find out, in just a few minutes, whether or not professional consultation would be helpful to you.

See the Self Help page in the sub-menu for additional information about how to deal with stress, test anxiety, depression, ADD, social media behavior and other challenges of being a college student.
