"Tufts’ current faculty and staff wellness program, Healthy Tufts: Experience Wellness, includes the onsite Wellness Center located on the Medford/Somerville campus and health coaching services on Tufts' three campuses. The Wellness Center provides acute care and preventive care services as well as personal health coaching and disease management for faculty, staff, spouses and qualified same-sex domestic partners at no charge. (https://access.tufts.edu/health-wellness)

Healthy Tufts: Experience Wellness collaborates with various partners to offer well-rounded and engaging wellness programming, which includes biometric health screenings, health risk assessments, lunch and learns, and fitness and mental health programs. In addition to the Wellness Center, our partners include the university’s health insurance provider, the Employee Assistance Program (EAP) and various schools and departments across the university.

The Tufts University Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is for all faculty and staff, their dependents, and household members. The EAP offers help to those who may be experiencing problems related to life changes and personal stress. These services include counseling, legal and financial advice and are a wonderful enhanced benefit of being able to work with a professional to locate day care and elder care resources.

Tufts’ Counseling & Mental Health Service (CMHS) provides individual counseling, groups and workshops, consultations and training, psychiatric medication evaluation, and testing services to students. CMHS is staffed by professionally trained counselors who have special expertise in working with college students, take a holistic approach to each student, and value each person's unique identity.

The Department of Health Promotion and Prevention envisions a campus which understands the impact of the environment on healthy communities and fully supports a continuum of education and prevention, early intervention, and access to services and promotes a culture of recovery and healthy life choices for all. Through education and prevention initiatives, we provide resources related to alcohol and drugs, nutrition, physical activity, sleep, stress management among others. We utilize a public health approach focusing on the impact of the environment on healthy communities and work collaboratively with undergraduates, graduate students, and student groups. http://students.tufts.edu/health-and-wellness/health-promotion-and-prevention"
