UW-Eau Claire Counseling Services is a place on campus where you can find someone to talk to when you're feeling hopeless, lonely, depressed, confused, upset over a relationship, or just plain stressed.
For fall 2020 Counseling Services will continue to offer our services via Tele-Counseling using Zoom. We continue to offer intakes, individual counseling, AODA Assessments, group therapy, and brief crisis drop-in sessions in the Tele-Counseling format. These services are only available to students that are physically in the state of Wisconsin, as we are prohibited from practicing across state lines. There will be no in person counseling services available. If you are in need of a private space for Tele-Counseling there will be private offices available for use at Counseling Services.
To schedule an appointment, call (715) 836-5521 during our business hours
Monday-Friday 8:00 AM-12:00 PM, 1:00 PM to 4:30 PM. We will be closed from 12:00-1:00 PM during the summer.
As a result of Executive Order 20-28 issued by Minnesota Governor Walz, we were able to offer services to UWEC students located in Minnesota. This order is set to expire 6/12/20 and students located in Minnesota will no longer be eligible for our services.
We're working hard to support students and their mental health needs virtually. In addition to Tele-Counseling services, you can now check out our Attacking Anxiety and Depression Workshop Videos, or see what our office is up to on Instagram and Facebook.
