Student Wellness Program
The Student Wellness Program (SWP)
is a free and confidential counseling service
which helps students deal effectively with stressors and other pressures
related to undergraduate and graduate school, as well as other personal problems that might impact one's academic performance (e.g., problems within one's academic setting).
How confidential is SWP? Confidentiality is paramount to providing effective student services. Therefore, information regarding a student will not be released to anyone without written consent from the student. Additionally, because the SWP is independent from the schools of the university, the SWP doesn't share any university-wide databases and/or central filing systems.
Who is eligible for services? The Student Wellness Program services are available to all students enrolled in academic programs at participating schools on the Piscataway, Stratford/Camden and Newark campuses. Additionally, services are available to family members who reside within your household.
What types of concerns might warrant a student using the SWP? The SWP provides assessment, counseling and referral services. Areas that SWP can help with include, but are not limited to the following: Personal problems, test taking anxiety, school related stress/anxiety, problems with relationships, family issues, eating disorders, alcohol and drug use, and problems with depression.
is there a fee for using the SWP? "NO" The SWP services are free to you as a student and to those members of your household who reside with you.
