UHS 24-hour Crisis Line – 608-265-5600 (option 9)

If you’re thinking about suicide, or if you’re concerned for the well-being of someone you know, call UHS to speak with an on-call crisis counselor who will help address your most pressing concerns, assess your safety, and connect you with follow-up service needs. We care about you, and want you to get connected to the support you need.

The crisis support line is available 24/7, 365 days a year. We receive calls from students, family members, partners, friends, roommates, faculty, housing staff, and other campus community members who are concerned about a student.

Connecting with Community Mental Health Resources

For long-term or specialized treatment, UHS Care Managers help students identify and connect with low-cost, local mental health providers that are not affiliated with campus. UHS Care Managers help students navigate insurance plans and understand coverage and benefits for a particular mental health service or provider. They can also help obtain local coverage or identify low-cost/sliding fee scale providers.
