    This is a dynamic partnership between the Edison Public Schools and University Behavioral Health Care (UBHC), a division of Rutgers University. The primary objective of the program is to help assure that students will obtain needed mental health and supportive assistance in an accessible location.

    The program provides a range of free and confidential mental health services in elementary schools, middle schools, and the high schools in Edison. Services include individual, group, and family counseling, crisis intervention, substance abuse identification and referral services.  Referrals to the program can be made by students, parents or school staff. Parent permission is required for participation. Please contact your school counselor for more information or contact Dr. Suzi Millar, the Clinician Supervisor at 732-289-8785.
