Our mental health providers understand the complexities of student life and offer an open, safe, and confidential environment to help students through issues that may interfere with their development, well-being, and academic productivity.

UHS’s no-cost mental health services include individual, couple/partner, group counseling, outreach programming, and stress management. We also offer 24/7 crisis services. Psychiatry services are also available for medication management.

Eligibility and Costs
Our services are confidential, and any enrolled UW-Madison student is eligible. There is no charge to students for mental health care at UHS because our services are paid for through tuition and fees. Students who complete spring semester but are not enrolled in summer courses are able to pay a Summer Health Fee to maintain access to services at UHS during the summer semester.
