In response to COVID-19 and the many stressors of being a college student, we're pleased to announce that NJCU has partnered with a mental health support service app called TalkCampus!
TalkCampus is a free app where you can talk with other students from around the world about a wide range of mental health concerns. It's designed as an extra support system. TalkCampus is based on peer support; you can use it if you need some help yourself, or you can provide support to others. Become a TalkCampus Volunteer.
While it's moderated by trained clinicians to maintain a safe environment, TalkCampus isn’t a replacement for counseling or professional mental health support; it's a great place to start talking and to gain support and validation, and can help you feel that right now you’re not alone.
Your feelings may not make sense to you right now, but they are always valid. The last 18 months has likely brought significant disruptions to your life, and it’s normal to need a little extra support.
TalkCampus is anonymous; it isn’t run by the the Counseling Center or NJCU, and we won't be able to see if you're using it, although information about our support services may be provided.
You can download TalkCampus directly from the App Store or Google Play. Once you've downloaded the app, your NJCU student email address will give you free access.
