UWM has contracted with FEI Behavioral Health to provide an Employee Assistance Program to all permanent employees and their immediate families/household members. The service will provide confidential guidance and assistance to employees and/or their immediate family/household members who are confronted with problems which disrupt their lives in a variety of ways.
In addition, in 2014 the HUB was conceptualized and opened to provide an array of wellness-related services and programs for UWM employees and members of the community. The mission of the HUB is to facilitate student experiential learning through developing, implementing and evaluating wellness-related programming for UWM employees and the greater Milwaukee community.
UWM employees who are enrolled in the State of Wisconsin Group Health Insurance Program are also encouraged to participate in the Well Wisconsin initiative, which consists of a variety of wellness initiatives including walking challenges, daily fitness recommendations, and mindfulness activities.
The Norris Health Center on campus provides students with Medical and Counseling services at low cost, and there is a lab and pharmacy on site at the clinic. Students can call for a routine or same day appointment. Norris Health Center’s Counseling Department provides mental, alcohol, and other drug screening, assessment, and treatment.
