UWM DOS Offers Extensive Wellness Resources For Students

The last two years have offered a set of unique challenges for all students and families. And these are on top of the regular challenges of everyday life, especially for college students adjusting to life on campus and more rigorous academic demands. UWM’s Dean of Students Office offers a wide variety of resources for students, including a number of resources highlighted on its Campus Cares website. You can also learn about some highlighted services below.

University Counseling Services

UCS offers students a variety of mental health services, including counseling and psychiatry services. Find more in information at https://uwm.edu/norris/university-counseling-services/

Let’s Talk

Talking can help.  Whether it’s stress, sadness, relationship concerns, academic problems, or coping with the impacts of COVID-19, sharing your concerns with another person can make a positive difference. “Let’s Talk” is a program that provides brief, informal, virtual consultations for UWM students with counselors from University Counseling Services https://uwm.edu/norris/counseling/lets-talk/

YOU@UWM

YOU@UWM provides student success and well-being information while highlighting available campus resources through a web-based platform that is available to you 24/7.

YOU@UWM is a space to check in with yourself, set goals, and explore UWM resources and services so you can be proactive with your health and well-being and make the most of your college experience.

Mindfulness

Mindfulness is a practice or set of practices that develop the capacity for a calm, focused mind that is open, responsive, and sensitive.  It can help reduce stress and promote wellness but is not always an easy thing to do. We have some resources to help you! Visit https://uwm.edu/norris/mindfulness/ or download The Mindfulness Workbook HERE.
