Mental Health Services

UHS offers a variety of helpful mental health services. 

  • UHS primary care providers are highly skilled in providing mental health care including medication management, and can address most mental health concerns like anxiety, depression, eating disorders, and basic sleep problems. If they determine you require specialist-level care, they will provide you with a referral for consultation at your next primary care visit. Specialty clinics include Psychiatry, Sleep Medicine, and the Eating and Body Image Concerns (EBIC) Clinic (available only to U-M students taking classes or UHS Prepaid Plan members who have a referral from a UHS clinician). You may be asked to return to your PCP after the initial consultation since this allows for continuity of care.
  • Clinical Social Workers support patients across the spectrum of mental health care at UHS with case management and other clinical interventions, such as EMDR therapy for sexual assault survivors. They may also help with screenings for mental health concerns, supportive care, and referrals, and can coordinate with CAPS as well.
  • The Addiction Medicine Clinic at UHS offers help with substance use and other behavioral concerns.

In addition to clinical services for mental health, Wolverine Wellness provides the following non-clinical services:

  • Wellness Coaching is a holistic approach to examining how personal well-being interacts with one's values, goals, and motivations.
  • The Collegiate Recovery Program, which supports students who are in recovery from alcohol or other drug addiction, nurturing their sobriety so they can excel in college. In addition, the program serves as a resource for people seeking information about recovery and what steps to take in order to stop hurting and start healing.
  • PaWWs & Relax, a therapy dog program. 
  • Programs and Services for Alcohol and Other Drugs
