In life, you face a whole range of everyday issues and questions. Managing your work, personal and family needs can be a daily challenge. Fortunately, Kent State provides the IMPACT Employee Assistance and Work/Life Program through Behavior Management Associates, Inc.IMPACT offers an array of counseling services including individual, family and couple counseling by licensed professionals at convenient locations and times for all eight Kent State campus communities, as well as for those employees and dependents located outside of the eight-campus regions.
The IMPACT program can assist with problems such as stress, anxiety, depression, child management, marital concerns or substance abuse, or help with issues involving consumer affairs, child or eldercare, financial or legal matters. All resources are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to confidentially provide professional counseling and guidance to faculty, staff and their family members in dealing with personal or professional issues.
Kent State University has contracted with IMPACT to provide up to six confidential counseling sessions, at no cost to faculty, staff, and/or their family members, per issue. If treatment is needed beyond the six sessions, IMPACT will make every effort to transition the client with a provider that participates in their insurance network.
