To be clear, SilverCloud is not intended to replace in-person behavioral health therapy or treatment for those individuals with more complex needs. It is a time-flexible option that is most effective for users who are experiencing mild to moderate symptoms. As such, the application does not require a referral from a mental health or medical provider.

Student Health and Counseling Services Appointments

Currently due to the COVID-19 situation, Counseling Services is temporarily suspending in-person counseling sessions. We will continue to support your mental health needs as we navigate the rest of the spring semester and summer term together. We are still here for you, just in a different way!  We will be continuing to offer phone consultations, medication referrals, and starting 4/20/20 we will also be offering Telecounseling.

If you are interested in utilizing any of these services, please call our main number 715-394-8236 or email shcs@uwsuper.edu, and one of our counselors will connect with you.

Health Care Clinic COVID-19 Policy

  • Health Care Clinic is not currently allowing any walk-in appointments. They are requiring all patients to call ahead of time 715-394-4117 so they can screen them for any potential virus symptoms.
  • At this time they are not seeing any patients for routine health care visits and only scheduling people who are symptomatic of an infection/STI or who have been named as a contact to someone who tested positive.
  • Scheduled patients will have their temperature taken upon arrival for their appointment. Anyone with a temperature of 100 degrees or more will have to reschedule.
  • At this time the HCC’s medical provider will have limited hours so those who do require an appointment might have to wait a week or two to be seen (this will change when the new RN is ready to see patients)
    • The clinic will be open every Wednesday from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. for refill pickups as well as Plan B. Again, patients MUST call ahead of time 715-394-4117 or email hcc@hcclinic.org.
  • They will post any updates/schedule changes on the Health Care Clinic Facebook page, which is probably the best way for patients to get the most up-to-date information regarding clinic policy. 

We are taking the following special precautions to ensure our patient’s health and safety from COVID-19

  • Patients will be screened for symptoms when making their initial appointment and again when they arrive at our clinic for their appointment.
  • No patient guests will be allowed in our clinic.
  • Patients needing contraception refills will be encouraged to have them mailed.
  • If Emergency Contraception is needed, please call ahead so staff can have it ready when you arrive.
  • We are attempting to reduce patient time spent at our clinic and limit contact between patients.
  • No walk-in appointments are available. Please call for an appointment.
  • Infection control policies to limit the transmission of the illness have been increased.
  • Public areas will be disinfected often.
  • Hand sanitizers and tissue are available for patients.
  • Proper handwashing instructions have been posted.
  • Staff has been instructed to stay home if ill.

HCC administration is actively monitoring this situation and we are following recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO). We will update and adjust our policies and schedules as necessary. 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our clinic, we appreciate your patience. Stay healthy.
