Health Services & Student Support For Your Health, Well-being and Success
Sometimes things happen: you don't feel well and want to see a nurse or need a doctor's appointment. Maybe you feel stressed, anxious or depressed - or you're having a hard time adjusting to changes in your life and want someone to talk to.
Or maybe you're looking for some academic support, like a tutor for that difficult class, or you need help with developing your career goals. Your health and well-being - physical health, psychological well-being, academic success - are priorities. Point Park has dedicated professional staff* to help you, whether you need assistance with a health issue, could use someone to talk to, or are looking for guidance with your studies or career plans.
We are proud to announce that Point Park University is a JED Campus. In the fall of 2020, PPU joined the JED Campus program in support of student mental health and well-being. The program is a nationwide initiative of The Jed Foundation (JED) designed to help schools evaluate and strengthen their mental health, substance misuse and suicide prevention programs and systems to ensure that schools have the strongest possible mental health safety nets. By joining JED Campus, Point Park demonstrates a commitment to the emotional well-being of its students. JED Campuses embark on a multi-year strategic collaboration that not only assesses and enhances the work that is already being done but also helps create positive, lasting, systemic change in the campus community. The program provides schools with a framework for supporting student mental health, as well as assessment tools, feedback reports, a strategic plan and ongoing support from the JED Campus team.
