Online Grief Support Group
Groups are open to the public and attendees are not engaging in a therapeutic relationship, but rather a supportive community. Each week, your facilitator will walk you through a skill and then open the floor for discussion and support.
GatorWell’s certified wellness coaches are professional health educators who will help you set priorities and identify specific changes you want to make to improve your academic performance. Wellness Coaching is not counseling, but your coach will help you create an individualized action plan.

CWC short-term counseling
In short-term online counseling, you meet via Zoom with a CWC provider, focusing on specific, manageable goals. For example, learning coping skills for times of uncertainty, developing self-help strategies for anxiety, or determining academic priorities while living at home. We recommend you think about some specific, manageable goals prior to starting online counseling.
All sessions are conducted via Zoom in a private and secure setting. Follow this link to learn about using Zoom at UF.
Call the CWC at 352-392-1575 to schedule a Brief Consultation and Referral appointment for help connecting to counseling resources whether with us or in your community.
