Employee Well-Being Support and Resources
During times of uncertainty, it’s normal to have feelings of stress, anxiety and fear. You are not alone, and there are resources and help available if you want someone to talk to or need support.
- The Office of Human Resources' Keep Well website has resources for you or your family to receive individual, personalized support – either via text, telephone or online counselling. All Employee Assistance Program (EAP) services are confidential, complimentary and provided by experienced, licensed mental health professionals. EAP is available to benefits-eligible faculty and staff and their family members.
- Tools, resources and expert advice to build resilience and maintain optimal well-being for yourself and your loved ones are also available on the Ohio State Chief Wellness Officer COVID-19 Resource Center. You'll find webinars, videos, evidence-based strategies, mobile apps and articles that encompass ways to promote positive mental health and reduce stress, eat healthy, stay active and help your family.
- To stay connected and focused on staying well, a weekly webinar series will be held on Wednesdays at 12:30 p.m., beginning on April 8. In the series entitled, "Staying Calm and Well in the Midst of the COVID-19 Storm: Evidence-based Tactics that Work!"
