Disordered eating assessment and treatment
UHS takes a multidisciplinary team approach to treating eating disorders. This means that each student struggling with an eating disorder is matched with an individual therapist, nutritionist, and medical provider. We also have psychiatry services available as needed. Each integrated team collaborates on a regular basis to develop and maintain individualized goals for treatment. In more severe cases, students may benefit from exploring community-based resources to complement services available through UHS. We provide care management support for students who may need assistance with exploring accessible insurance benefits and securing community resources.
There is no fee assessed for initial consultation appointments. Students may receive up to 10 individual counseling sessions per calendar year. These sessions occur approximately once per month. For any student in need of more frequent or longer term counseling, UHS will recommend community-based counseling. There are no session limits for medical, nutrition, psychiatry, group counseling or case management services.
If you are concerned about your eating behaviors, or those of someone you care about, please visit UHS for support. This can be achieved by visiting the Mental Health Services reception desk (333 East Campus Mall, 7th floor) any time between 9 am and 4 pm, Monday through Friday. Or, by calling 608-265-5600 (option 2).
