An Access Appointment is the entry point to services at Mental Health Services and is typically done over the phone. During this appointment, together with you, we’ll collaboratively determine needs and connect you to the best resources to meet those needs.
To schedule an Access Appointment call Mental Health Services at 608-265-5600 (option 2) or log on to MyUHS for 24-hour appointment booking. In person appointments are available by request. This appointment will last about 20 minutes.
