Counseling Services: Covid-19 Updates

Dear Students, 

We know many of you are missing out on connecting with others socially. This is especially hard because humans were built for connection! In response, Counseling Services will offer a Coffee, Tea, and Conversation via Zoom every Wednesday from 9-10am until we are back on campus. 

There will be no more than eight students per conversation group. We hope you are willing to give this a try:) We will have some conversation topics around self-care. 

You do not need to be a client of Counseling Services to participate. A counselor will be present for the entire conversation. All student code of conduct policies will be upheld (i.e. appropriate behavior). 

If you are interested in learning more or would like to sign up, please contact Tina Kadar at ckadar@wctc.edu or call 262.695.3440. 


 

In response to the Coronavirus (COVID 19), WCTC facilities are closed and staff is working remotely to continue to provide services to students. We are experiencing significant changes in how we provide services.  

WCTC Counseling Services recognizes that the current impact of COVID-19 is a unique and stressful situation that is in a constant state of change for all of us. During this time, it is important that we continue to connect, support, and be present for each other in whatever way we can.

Please read the following information to find out more about how to connect with Counseling Services while the campus is closed.
