Mental Health Resources

The UW-Eau Claire Police Department recognizes the need for mental health resources in a college setting. We hope the information on this page is helpful. 

To provide the best response, UW-Eau Claire Police Officers are required to attend a specialized 40 hour Crisis Intervention Training (CIT). This training, which is specific to law enforcement, was developed and facilitated in coordination with local mental health professionals and NAMI (National Association of Mental Illness).  In addition, officers attend other trainings that assist in de-escalating situations that we respond to. 

There are many resources on campus and within our community that can be utilized 24 hours a day / 7 days a week.  We encourage all students, faculty and staff to reach out to these resources when needed.
