Counseling Liaisons to Colleges
Each UCS staff member has an on-going liaison relationship with a department, college, and/or student group at UW-Platteville. This liaison relationship helps to bridge the gap between UCS services and the campus community by providing services and education on how to assist individuals facing mental health concerns. We invite you to contact your liaison with any questions about our programs and services, to consult if you have an individual of concern, or for guidance on how to refer someone to UCS. Your liaison is also available to attend a departmental meeting to discuss programs and services, and to answer any questions. If you have an urgent issue about an individual of concern that requires an immediate response, we encourage you to call 608-342-1865.

one should hesitate to seek out counseling, as it can offer growth and tools to care for ourselves.
Seeking out counseling oftentimes is one of the most honest and brave things because it allows
