The mission of the Health and Wellness component of the Counseling, Health and Wellness Center is to provide a welcoming environment for William Paterson University students. The Health and Wellness Center staff members provide care for students who are ill or injured. Through health-related counseling and education, we support students' efforts to maintain their physical and emotional well-being and make informed decisions that promote personal wellness and effect life-long health.

The Health and Wellness office is staffed by advanced practice nurses (nationally certified nurse practitioners), registered nurses, medical assistants and a physician consultant.
