MENTAL HEALTH

Kent State University is committed to raising awareness about mental health in the workplace, reducing stigma associated with mental illness, and most importantly, bringing awareness and resources to support treatment and self-care.

If you, a co-worker or a loved one suffer from depression or other mental health issues, it can feel like being lost in the woods. Kent State aims to provide the necessary resources to assist you on the path to recovery. Early intervention, coupled with supportive services is available through Impact Solutions, our employee assistance program. 

You can also view more of our partners in wellness that offer services, ranging from depression screening to counseling and crisis intervention, that help employees and students thrive by maintaining and improving their mental health.

Counseling and Psychological Services is dedicated to serving the needs of Kent State University students.  Faculty and staff members who may be in need of counseling or psychological assistance for themselves or a family member should identify a mental health provider in the community.

Employees can also consider accessing the IMPACT Employee Assistance and Work/Life Program.  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.
