Mental Health & Substance Use


Just as work and life are connected, so are mind and body. Feeling “at our best” and ready to “take on the day” revolves around many aspects — including our mental well-being. Resources and support are available to employees and members of their households who are looking for a boost in growing or maintaining their mental health.

If you are experiencing an emergency, please dial 911 or go to the nearest hospital emergency room.

Please remember to check with your IU-sponsored medical plan administrator to determine coverage and provider network eligibility, when using mental health and substance use treatment resources outside of Indiana University.
