Caring for Those in Crisis
Mental Health Services (MHS) at University Health Services offers comprehensive mental health services for all University of Wisconsin-Madison students. With the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, ongoing experiences of racism and trauma, and other serious concerns experienced by college students, our students need us now more than ever.
There is a growing need across the country for increased mental health services on college campuses. As a leader in the field, MHS continuously works to enhance and grow our services and our reach on the UW-Madison campus. Your gifts will help us continue to develop and implement specialized programming to support students, ensure that all students have access to mental health services year-round, and enable us to develop innovative services for students who may be at higher risk.
