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.

Where to go to get better

The Indiana University Health Center

If you’re an IU student (or the dependent of an IU student), the IU Health Center can serve as your primary medical resource. It offers a full-service medical clinic, laboratory and radiological services, a pharmacy, and even physical therapy. You can make an appointment by calling 812-855-7688, or just show up during walk-in clinic hours.

Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS)

Each year, thousands of IU students find themselves facing mental health challenges that they don’t know how to fix. Whether you’re feeling depressed, are struggling with substance abuse, or are just struggling to cope with college life, CAPS can help. It offers counseling options and workshops to assist with virtually any mental health issue.

Crimson CORPS

Sometimes you just need to talk to someone who understands. Someone who knows what you’re going through—and faces the same challenges. That’s where the Crimson CORPS comes in. Every Crimson CORPS member is a student just like you. But they have undergone extensive training to recognize the signs of mental distress and learn how to help.
