The P.A.T.H. program 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 supported assistance in an accessible location.
The program provides a range of free and confidential mental health services at all school levels within the District. Services include individual, group, and family counseling, crisis intervention, substance abuse identification, and referral services. Referrals to the program can be made my students, parents, or school staff. Parent permission is required for participation. For more information, please contact your student’s school counselor at 732-452-2920 x30005 or Ms. McDermott at 732-452-2920 x30026.
