A place of support

The Office of Student Counseling & Development provides confidential, short-term, personal counseling to the graduate, medical, and physician assistant students in the College of Medicine.


Self Assessment

The Self Evaluator was developed for ULifeline by Duke University School of Medicine and screens for thirteen of the most common mental health conditions that college students face. This screening does not provide a diagnosis, but identifies problems that could be impacting thoughts, feelings and behaviors. The screening process also provides information on these conditions and how to reach out for help.

U Matter We Care

The UF Community cares about one another. U Matter, We Care extends UF’s caring culture by educating our community about signs and symptoms of distress and provides students and employees in distress in distress with the appropriate resources. You can contact us by phone at 352-294-CARE (352-294-2273) or by email at umatter@ufl.edu.

UF Counseling and Wellness Center – CWC

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.

Jax Students

The UF Health Center for Healthy Minds and Practice, or CHaMP, was established to meet the growing needs of wellness and mental health support in a safe, confidential environment. All services are free of charge.
