The University of Wisconsin- Whitewater's University Health and Counseling Services (UHCS) has served as a training site for masters internship and doctoral practicum students in counseling, psychology and social work students for several decades. UHCS offers a range of mental health services for UW-Whitewater students, including counseling, crisis intervention, consultation, support groups and other health and wellness enhancement services.
The Training Program at UHCS provides supervised experience in an integrated university Counseling, Health and Wellness Center where intern training is woven into every aspect of the center's functioning. The multi-disciplinary clinical staff includes professional counselors, psychologists, social workers, nurse practitioners, physicians and medical assistants.
Direct service activities include individual and group counseling, consultation, and outreach activities. Supervision and training are geared to the intern's level of professional development.
