Psychological & Wellness Services (PAWS) provides confidential mental health counseling and related services for currently enrolled UW Tacoma students at no additional costs. We also provide consultation to faculty, staff, and university student families.
We provide intentional, problem-focused mental health counseling, aimed at building better skills and exploring alternative ways of coping. Psychological & Wellness Services provides confidential crisis, individual, and group counseling; educational workshops and classroom presentations; consultation for students, faculty, staff, and student families; and referrals (when appropriate) to community mental health and social service providers and other UWT student services and resources.
Students new to UW Tacoma are unable to receive services until the start of their first quarter.
