*** Notice to wayForward app users:
SWU employees and students have had access to a behavioral health app called wayForward provided through our partnership with First Sun. We recently received notice that the wayForward app has been acquired, and the new owner will no longer be supporting the app. Therefore, the app will not be available after December 31. We apologize for the suddenness of this change. In collaboration with First Sun, we are in the process of seeking a new partner to provide app-based services. Stay tuned for more updates / information. ***
