A brief description of the institution’s wellness and/or employee assistance program(s):

The Counseling Center’s mission is to promote personal growth, development, and psychological well-being while maintaining a strong commitment to diversity and social justice. Integral to achieving our mission are mental health services, outreach/consultation, and training of future professionals.
We also offer a wide variety of small thematic and therapy groups, as well as workshops. If it's determined that one of these services will best meet your needs, it will be recommended.

Working together, we at Ball State University will create a campus culture that encourages employees, retirees, and their families to lead healthy lifestyles while optimizing health care resources.
Ball State wants to help employees cope with these challenges by providing free counseling sessions, self-help tools, online articles and other resources for you and your family members through our Employee Assistance Program (EAP). Confidential services are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week at no cost to you or your family
