Center for Health and Well-being

About Us

CHW nurtures a campus culture of resilience based upon the SWOSU’s value of respect, by fostering a safe, healthy, and diverse intellectual, cultural, and social environment that encourages emotional well-being.

We are a proud member of the JED Campus community, a signature program of The Jed Foundation (JED) designed to create positive, systemic change on university campuses. JED is a comprehensive approach to mental health promotion and suicide prevention for colleges and universities across the nation.

Stepped Care Model

The Stepped Care Model is referenced in the JED Playbook as a holistic approach that provides flexible access to wellness and mental health resources.  We recognize that a student is flourishing when they are healthy in all aspects of their life. Stepped Care gives individuals the opportunity to step their care up, or step it down, depending on their health needs.  It is an individualized approach.
