Student Wellness Program

The Student Wellness Program (SWP) is a free, confidential counseling service that helps students deal effectively with stressors and other pressures related to school, as well as personal problems that might impact one's academic performance (e.g., problems within one's home, social/personal, or academic setting). Students' concerns are addressed through a variety of SWP services including short-term, focused counseling for students and members of their household; prevention oriented groups and workshops; assessment and referral for specialized substance abuse treatment; and crisis intervention.
Services address issues such as:
  • coping skills
  • eating disorders
  • psychiatric issues in conjunction with substance use/abuse
  • different types of anxiety
  • depression
  • relationship concerns
Psychiatric and psychological services are completely confidential and include:
  • Short-term, focused counseling for students and members of their household
  • Prevention-oriented groups and workshops
  • Assessment and referral for specialized substance abuse treatment
  • Crisis intervention
Treatment is aimed mainly at relatively short-termed psychotherapy; outpatient restorative intervention for problems that are common to the adult student population.
The SWP has sites located in both Newark and Piscataway. Call to schedule an appointment:
