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

Sonoma State University promotes a culture of wellness amongst faculty and staff to encourage personal and professional productivity, physical and mental well-being, and promote a healthy lifestyle. We believe that healthy employees are more productive, happier and better prepared to thrive.
The Employee Wellness Program is a voluntary program that is available to all employees and is utilized during (not in addition to) appropriate rest breaks. Lunchtime fitness classes are considerate of a 30 or 60-minute lunch break so that employees may plan accordingly.
The Wellness Program is a benefit made available by Human Resources, Environmental Health & Safety and the Department of Kinesiology.

The employee assistance program (EAP) is designed to provide professional assistance to state faculty, staff and their families (dependents and permanent household members) in assessing and resolving personal problems that may be affecting well-being or job performance.

Empathia offers a wide array of health solutions focused on promoting individual and organizational well-being, providing work/life resources and educational webinars/seminars for employees.

Counseling & Psychological Services supports the overall mission of Sonoma State University and a division of Student Affairs. The mission of Counseling & Psychological Services is to serve the mental health needs of the campus community through offering counseling, consultation, training, and outreach. The program strives to acknowledge, accept, and support the perspectives of a diverse campus population. This includes, but is not limited to race/ethnicity, gender, age, sexual orientation, ability, religious/spiritual affiliation, and socioeconomic status. In counseling, the goal is to empower clients and promote personal growth, effective communication, positive self-esteem, satisfying relationships, decision-making skills, and the clarification of personal values.
