Students, faculty, staff, and teaching assistants are essential when it comes to preventing suicide and promoting help-seeking behaviors among their peers. UHS offers consultation with concerned third parties.

Jennifer Moulton began her work with UHS as a Staff Psychologist in 2015, and has been with the UHS team since 2013 when she started her clinical internship and post-doctoral fellowship. While Moulton has always had a vested interest in supporting others in need, she has a particular interest in the field of college health. “[College] is a very rich environment and important time in life, and there is so much opportunity for change and growth,” says Moulton.
As a staff psychologist, Moulton meets with clients in individual and group counseling settings and helps address the personal obstacles they wish to overcome. Moulton also serves as a UHS liaison for the Multicultural Student Center, assisting with their drop-in counseling hours, outreach events, and wellness initiatives. “I have interests in social and cultural identity development, and college students are at a prime stage in their lives for exploring their intersecting cultural identities and how these influence their experiences,” says Moulton. It has been rewarding for Moulton to work with fellow C&CS staff on creating opportunities for diverse and underserved student populations to connect outside of a typical counseling setting. Whether she’s in a campus or clinic setting, Moulton marries her passions of supporting others and fostering inclusive spaces for identity exploration and development.
Moulton enjoys cooking, trying new restaurants, listening to live music, and spending time outdoors when the Wisconsin weather permits.
