Your mental health is our priority

From the thrill of being on your own and chasing your dreams to feeling alone and stressed along the way, college can be so many things. Our priority is supporting you throughout your IU journey, and we understand that no two journeys are the same. There is no one-size-fits-all solution to traversing through the highs and the lows, which is why we’ve assembled a wide lineup of resources to support you.

I care about U

Let’s be there for one another. Our social connections shouldn’t be underestimated. Being an ear to listen or a shoulder to cry on matters more than we can imagine. Reaching out isn’t always easy, so it is vital to support someone courageous enough to do so. And together, we can create a culture of care.
