At the Counseling and Wellness Center (CWC) we believe that the college years are a time for change, growth, inquiry, and development. We strive to help students learn the skills to cope with the stresses of change and growth so they are better able to learn and thrive after their time as a student is over.

Our Mission

The CWC’s mission is to foster human development in all of its diversity through compassion, empowerment, advocacy, hope, and heart. At the CWC, we embrace differences and help nurture a healthy and healing campus environment for all. As the primary provider of counseling, mental health, and psychiatric services for students at the University of Florida we embrace differences and nurture a healthy and healing campus environment for all.

Services and Staff

Our services include traditional, group, and couples’ therapy as well as consultation, crisis services, outreach, biofeedback, and more.

Our interdisciplinary staff is here to support our students finish their educational programs successfully and achieve their personal wellness goals along the way. Our primary commitment is to ensure that each student gets connected with best-fitting campus or community resources to meet their existing needs.

Dedicated to Culture and Diversity

At the CWC, we value diversity and recognize the unique challenges students may face based on one’s race, creed, color, religion, age, disability, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, size, marital status, national origin, political opinions/affiliations, genetic information, veteran status, and the many other ways one might identify. Throughout all of our services, including individual counseling, group counseling, and workshops, we strive to create a supportive and empowering environment that is inclusive of all students.

The CWC is committed to helping all UF students and stands behind UF Student Affairs’ Diversity and Social Justice Statement.

Animals in the Counseling & Wellness Center

In order to make the Counseling and Wellness Center accessible and reasonably comfortable for all students, CWC limits the presence of animals inside the building.  Only service dogs and CWC’s therapy dogs are currently approved to work at the CWC. Emotional support animals are not permitted in the Radio Road building nor the 4th floor of Peabody Hall. Individuals who wish to have an emotional support animal accompany them during therapy will be referred to an appropriate community provider.

However, we do have a weekly workshop, Yappy Hour, where you can visit with our own therapy dogs, Siggi and Gabe.
