Student Wellness Program

The Student Wellness Program (SWP) is a free and confidential counseling service which helps students deal effectively with stressors and pressures related to school, as well as personal problems that may affect their well-being, their home lives and/or their academic performance.

What services are offered?

  • Short term and focused individual, couples and family counseling.

  • Crisis Intervention.

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

  • Assessment and referral for specialized substance abuse treatment.

  • Training and consultation to peer support counselors, faculty & staff.

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.
