Students, faculty, staff, and teaching assistants are essential when it comes to preventing suicide and promoting help-seeking behaviors among their peers. UHS offers consultation with concerned third parties.
University Health Services (UHS) is the UW-Madison student health center. For more than 100 years, our physicians, nurses, psychologists, and counselors have offered high-quality health care and wellness services that are culturally respectful, fiscally responsible, and developmentally appropriate to student needs. With more than 70,000 student visits each year, our integrated care model promotes and protects the health of our campus community so that students benefit from them whether or not they ever receive care at UHS.
The University Health Service was founded in December 1910 in response to common infectious disease outbreaks. Acting as a medical clinic for the majority of its history, UHS initiated an environmental health program in 1968 and adopted counseling services in 1993 to broaden services to all of campus.
