Am I eligible for Counseling Services?

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

Visit our eligibility page for more information.

What happens after my initial phone screening?

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 Counseling Services case manager.

Are there any services I cannot get at Counseling Services?
  • Counseling Services does not provide any mandated services or those that may require either court testimony and/or letters or reports to be filed with any legal entities. We do not provide services where litigation is either involved or pending.
  • 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.
