IMPORTANT REMINDER... Our office will be moving to a new building, 254 Rodli Hall, on January 14th.  Phone numbers and email addresses will remain the same.  

 

Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide professional mental health counseling and consultation services for our campus community that:

  • Incorporates a brief-therapeutic model with an emphasis on developmental counseling directed at helping currently enrolled students succeed in the university environment; coordinates referrals to off-campus professionals when specialized, more intensive, and/or longer term services are needed.
  • Creates developmental programming to increase healthy lifestyle and coping behaviors.
  • Provide leadership and advocacy for university mental health policy and initiatives.  

Scope of Practice

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.
