Eating Disorders Screening Event on April 12

Body dissatisfaction and low self-esteem can negatively impact one’s academic performance and social life. If your preoccupation with food, weight and your shape are preventing you from enjoying everyday activities, counseling can help you regain balance.

UWM is offering free eating disorder screenings on Tuesday, April 12 from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm. You can receive a free screening that day by signing up at the information table on the main floor of the UWM union, or by going directly to room 143, the private screening area in the union. These screenings will help participants learn about signs of eating disorders, their personal risk factors, and available treatment options.

The screenings include:

  • An anonymous eating disorder assessment
  • Educational resources for participants to take home
  • A confidential interview with a mental health specialist to discuss the results of individual screenings
  • A list of local resources where treatment is available

During this time, free educational information about good nutrition and healthy exercise will be available at the information table. UWM mental health counselors will also be at the table and available to answer questions.



Let’s Talk is an
exciting program for UWM students!

Let’s Talk is a new and exciting program for UWM students! It provides easy access to informal and confidential support and consultation offered by counselors from Norris Health Center's Counseling and Consultation Services. Counselor consultants will hold drop-in hours at various sites around campus Monday through Thursday. All students are welcome. There is no fee, no appointment necessary, and students are seen on a first-come, first-served basis.

Let's Talk was developed at Cornell University and has been duplicated in at least 15 campuses in the country. The program has received national recognition and been cited in the following articles: "Reaching Students Who Won't Walk In, The Expanding Safety Net, and "Eliminating Racial Disparities in College Completion and Achievement: Current Initiatives, New Ideas, and Assessment."

Examples of who may benefit from Let's Talk:
• Students not sure about counseling and wonder what it’s like
• Students not interested in ongoing counseling but would like a counselor’s perspective
• Students who have a specific problem and want to talk it through
• Students who have a concern about a friend and want some ideas about what to do
