Outreach Services and Programs

Outreach Services

Behavioral Health staff members provide presentations, workshops, and consultation to students, faculty, and staff at UIW.

Presentations and Workshops

The Behavioral Health team provides presentations and workshops that focus on activities that increase individual, interpersonal, and professional development. Most programs address both knowledge and skills, and some include experiential or interactive components. During the year, we initiate a number of programs, often in collaboration with other UIW organizations or departments. In addition, we frequently receive and respond to requests to develop programs for classes, student organizations, faculty or staff groups, and other UIW units. We include activities individually tailored to the needs of the particular organization.

Some topics addressed in recent programs for students include:

  • coping with stress 
  • assertiveness training 
  • understanding personality style differences 
  • decreasing problems with alcohol and substance use 
  • developing healthy relationships 
  • issues of body image and eating disorders 
  • sexual assault and violence prevention 
  • coping with depression 
  • awareness of issues concerning diversity in gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability 
  • managing trauma in an academic setting 
  • resources available through Behavioral Health Services 

Some topics addressed in recent programs for faculty or staff include:

  • understanding personality style differences as they relate to professional interactions (including differences in learning styles) 
  • working with students experiencing distress (including facilitating referral to appropriate resources) 
  • balancing multiple roles 
  • managing conflict in the classroom or academic setting 
  • resources available through Behavioral Health Services 

Our staff can develop programs addressing a variety of other topics. We can also suggest other resources at UIW for topics outside our expertise.

Request a Workshop

If you are interested in a having Behavioral Health Services provide a presentation, workshop, or training, please complete the Presentation/Training/Workshop Request form and submit it to the Director of Behavioral Health Services, Dr. Kevin Milligan, via email ( Dr. Milligan will review your request and contact you, typically within 3-5 days of your initial request.

While we will make every effort to meet requests, certain peak times of the year do not allow us the time or resources to do outreach programs. Ultimately, it is best if you give us at least two to four weeks notice for a presentation.

If we are unable to meet your need, we will suggest other resources to you or discuss another time of the year when we might be more available to meet your needs and/or requests.
