Reminder: Access to behavioral health resources available, information continues to be shared

As acknowledged via one of the five pillars of the Healthy Boiler Program, behavioral health plays a key role in overall employee well-being. Referred to by many names – behavioral health, mental health, emotional well-being and more – one thing is certain, it’s important. Purdue understands that raising awareness about mental health needs and ensuring that resources are readily available is an everyday necessity, even more so in today’s environment.

With that said, Human Resources is continuing its long-term initiative to help the Purdue community learn about resources and training opportunities so that we all have the help, support and information we need. Featured on the Human Resources website, employees will find the Mental Health Resources web page, which provides a list of available resources, such as:

  • Assistance Now – Crisis / Immediate Help
  • Apps and Online Digital Resources
  • Suicide Prevention Resources
  • Telehealth Therapy
  • Newsroom Archive

The Newsroom Archive includes links to the weekly Purdue Today articles, which focus on mental health-related topics. A sampling of those articles is below:

Additionally, the Mental Health Resources web page provides information on Purdue’s health plan coverage and behavioral health referral locations for the West Lafayette, Fort Wayne and Northwest campuses.   

Be sure to check the Mental Health Resources web page often as new information is added as it becomes available.
