To access our online-only services please select the following links: SilverCloud and Lets Talk Consultations.

Our services are available to UWM students currently enrolled in classes for credit and who have paid the student segregated fee.

Accessing our counseling and psychiatry services starts with a triage appointment, which is a 15-20 minute phone screening. During the screening we gather information that helps us make a recommendation for your best next steps.

Next steps may include: a counseling intake (individual, group, or couples therapy), a medication evaluation, or a referral for care in the community through our UCS case manager.

  • We do not provide evaluation-only services or comprehensive psychological testing services, including testing for ADHD or learning disabilities. Neuropsychological testing can be pursued on campus through the UWM Psychology Clinic.
