Integrated with On-Campus Resources

WUSA has worked closely with UW Campus Wellness to ensure that Empower Me is fully integrated with UW Campus Wellness to provide a one-stop, customized array of campus resources that contribute to a resilient student community. Through a "warm handoff" referral method, campus counsellors will share information with your consent with Empower Me counsellors, and vice versa. This allows for better case load management and reduced wait times, and permits UW Campus Wellness resources to support those most in need. No matter where you start — through Empower Me or at UW Campus Wellness — you can get the support you need!
