Center for Health and Well-being
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.

SWOSU collaborates with Weatherford Regional Hospital (WRH) in order to promote student health. As a component of this co-sourcing model, a WRH nurse maintains an office in the Center for Health and Well-being. Services include minor first aid, immunizations, pregnancy testing, and CLIA-waived testing including Strep, Influenza, and Urine Analysis. There is not a charge for SWOSU students to see the university nurse. A $10 copay is charged to a student’s bursar account if a physician’s appointment is scheduled through the university. Telemedicine options are available.
