In support of students' emotional health as well as academic success, North Point Academy offers parents the opportunity to have their teens participate in a free emotional health checkup by What's Up Wellness Checkups.  The checkups are offered district-wide by the NJUHSD STARS program.  More detailed information about the program can be found at www.whatsupwellness.com
 
The screening process helps students identify coping skills, support systems, and both in-school and community resources.  The screenings also identify risk factors associated with depression, anxiety, and alcohol/substance abuse.  The program is FREE, completely voluntary, and confidential. 
 
Parent consent is required and can be found HERE.  It is a one-time screening.  Parents are only notified if further support is recommended or requested by their student. 
 
This semester, the screenings will take place on campus from 9-2 the week of October 30-November 2.  Please have your student talk with their teacher or our office staff to schedule their screening appointment.
