The mission of the UAMS Student Wellness Program (SWP) is to promote wellness in our students by providing the tools and support to help them maintain balance in their lives and achieve their full professional and personal potential. The SWP provides two kinds of services to address this goal: Clinical Services and Outreach Services.

To provide additional support in these difficult and uncertain times, the SWP is offering a new service called informal consultation.
