UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN River Falls
Our mission is to provide professional mental health counseling and consultation services for our campus community that:
Counseling Services does not provide long-term intensive counseling and psychotherapy. It is beyond Counseling Services' scope of practice to provide ongoing counseling and psychotherapy for students who may be diagnosed with a variety of serious, long-term psychiatric conditions, and individuals who appear to be a recurring high risk of harm to themselves or to the UW-River Falls community. These students will be referred to appropriate community resources.
The Student Health and Counseling Services main office at 254 Rodli will be closed starting Mon March 23, 2020 and our staff will be working remotely, so we will continue to answer phones and respond to emails during business hours as we are able (8am-4:30pm Mon-Fri). Services will continue as outlined below and please see below for crisis/emergency numbers/information. Telephone: 715-425-3884. Please check for updates at the UWRF COVID-19 web page and the Student Health and Counseling Services webpage. Our webpages have many online resources (the Student Health and Counseling web page, and the Counseling Services and Student Health Services web pages as well), which are regularly being updated, so please check these out.
