This program is intended to encompass all of the College’s statewide wellbeing initiatives including financial education, healthy lifestyle education and programs, and stress management.
Employee Assistance Program (EAP)
An EAP is a confidential and voluntary, work-based program that offers short-term counseling, referrals, and follow-up services to employees who have personal and/or work-related problems. EAPs address a broad and complex body of issues affecting mental and emotional well-being, such as alcohol and other substance abuse, stress, grief, family problems, and psychological disorders.
Each campus has an individual relationship to their EAP provider. Select the link below to find your provider. Please contact your local Human Resources team for additional information.
QuitNow Tobacco Cessation Program
According to the American Lung Association, every year more than 480,000 individuals in the U.S. die from tobacco use. It is the number one preventable death in this country. It leads to disability and disease, and harms nearly every organ in your body.
We want to help you quit!
Ivy Tech has teamed up with the Wellness Council of Indiana to provide a tool to help you quit. The QuitNow program takes you through a 12 chapter quitting process. You can sign up by going to www.quitnowtool.com and select the "Sign Up Today" button.
Please note: If you participate in the College's medical plan your premiums will depend on your tobacco use (this includes smokeless tobacco, e-cigarettes, and vapor). If you are a tobacco user, you will be subject to additional premiums. Documented completion of the QuitNow program will allow you to pay the no-tobacco user premium rate.
