The Student Wellness Unit (SWU) offers students a safe environment to deal with psychological, emotional, behavioral as well as cognitive problems. It ensures a safe space with its strict privacy and confidentiality policies. Additionally, the SWU works to raise awareness of mental health issues, certain disabilities, and cognitive problems amongst the students to help educate community members to better understand and empathize with students experiencing difficulties. Students who need academic accommodations can approach the office for the necessary support for their academic success.
All cases are completely confidential. The staff at the SWU take the student privacy and right to confidentiality extremely seriously. The office does not discuss a student’s case with anyone without first clearing through the students.
A student must sign a confidentiality agreement form. Prior to providing any of the services.
