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

1.) Indiana University system-wide provides Full-time Academic and Staff employee and their household members’ access to an Employee Assistance Program (IUEAP). An eligible participant has access to telephone helpline 365/24/7 and, with an EAP referral, may receive up to six face-to-face visits with a professional counselor.

IUEAP services are confidential and voluntary, and include assistance for depression, stress and anxiety, conflict in the workplace, drug and alcohol abuse, family and marital problems, and grief and loss. More information: http://www.indiana.edu/~uhrs/benefits/eap.html

Supervisors may use IUEAP services as a resource for guidance in dealing with a troubled employee. In the event of a traumatic situation in the workplace, counselors can make onsite visits to provide critical incident debriefing.

All fees for the IUEAP program are paid by the University. There is no cost to employees for IUEAP services.

2.) IU also has a program called Healthy IU. This program aims to make healthy options easy and available for employees. This includes tools for living well, access to wellness classes, nutrition counseling, and opportunities for physical activity on campus with other employees.

The mission of Healthy IU is:
"Recognizing that employees perform their best when they are healthy and that optimal employee performance is necessary for Indiana University to be the preeminent institution of higher education in Indiana, Healthy IU exists to empower, educate, and provide necessary tools for healthy living for the university-wide campus community with specific focus on benefit-eligible employees and their covered family members."
