Aggies Thrive is a USU initiative designed to connect university employees and their families to available mental health resources.

The mission of the Student Health and Wellness Center (SHWC) is to provide primary medical and mental health services to the USU student body and assist the USU community in the development of life skills necessary to enhance personal wellness. Primary care, urgent care, and psychiatric/mental health services are covered by the student health fee. Other services (procedures, labs and imaging) are offered at or near cost. No health insurance is required, but you may bill insurance for any service not covered by the student health fee.

Most services are free to qualified students, confidential, and not part of academic or university records.
