Lifeworks rolls out mental health support resources this October

Lifeworks, Illinois Tech’s Employee Assistance Program, is focusing on mental health this October. New this month is Lifeworks’ Mental Health Microsite. You can also check out the Heartbeat Newsletter for articles on overcoming the cultural barriers of mental illness, helping your loved one lift the stigma of mental illness, and to access videos like this one on the Mind-Body Connection. When you visit the Heartbeat Newsletter site, you also have access to prior months’ newsletters and all of their articles, videos, and resources.

As always, Lifeworks is available 24/7 for free and confidential assistance for Illinois Tech Employees and their families. Don’t forget the Lifeworks app, either. It’s available in the Apple App Store and Google Play, and allows you to access Lifeworks’ resources directly through your smartphone!

In addition to free, short term counseling services, Lifeworks offers a variety of work/life balance resources including life coaching, LIFT virtual fitness, and more.
