To join a group, schedule an Access Appointment  in MyUHS or contact Mental Health Services at 608-265-5600 (option 2).
During your consultation, let the counselor know that you’re interested in joining a group.

The only groups available right now are the Anxiety and Depression workshop and the Mindfulness Sampler series.

Interpersonal Process Groups

Interpersonal Process Groups are often the treatment of choice for people who experience troubled relationships, loneliness, depression, anxiety, grief/loss, and low self-esteem. These groups offer a safe environment to identify and explore feelings; to give and receive support and feedback; to practice new, healthier ways of relating to others; and to feel less lonely or isolated.
