We are staffed by psychologists and mental health counselors who provide brief counseling, assessment, referral, and crisis intervention services to currently-enrolled University of Washington students. There is no charge for most of our services. Watch a brief video about mental health at the UW.
Updates about our services (3/2/2015):
- The current wait time for an initial appointment (intake) is around one week, though it may be possible to be seen sooner, if you call for a same-day appointment.
- If you are experiencing a crisis and need help right away, click here for information about crisis services.
- Once you have seen a counselor for an initial appointment, you may be provided with a referral to an outside provider if longer-term counseling is indicated. If you and your intake counselor agree that your needs are a good match for short-term UWCC services, you may need to wait 1-2 weeks before you begin meeting with your assigned counselor.
- If you would like referrals to providers in the community, please contact us and a counselor will assist you.
