Prevention oriented groups and workshops on relevant topics, e.g. stress management.

How confidential is the 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 school, 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 the 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, alcohol & 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.
Where is the Student Wellness Program located? The SWP has sites located on the Newark, Piscataway, and Stratford/Camden campuses.
