Health, Wellness & Safety

Get the help you need to feel your best

“Never daunted, we cannot falter...”

So says the IU fight song. But we all know that when you’re not feeling well—mentally, physically, or emotionally—it’s hard not to falter.

We work hard to make sure you have all the resources you need to cope with life’s stumbling blocks—big and small.

And when the going gets tough, you can count on your peers to have your back.
