The health and wellness of our students – inside and outside of the classroom – is extremely important to Indiana Tech. That’s why our Wellness Clinic is equipped with a health clinic nurse practitioner and a qualified counseling professional to help our student body maintain optimum physical and emotional health. In addition to providing quality treatment options, we strive to promote healthy behaviors and lifestyle choices that will enable students to effectively pursue their academic goals.
The Indiana Tech/Parkview Student Assistance Program offers a variety of short-term counseling and consultation services to address the needs of students. All services are confidential and provided in a welcoming, comfortable setting, regardless of race, gender, religion, ethnic background, age, sexual orientation, citizenship or presence of a disability.

All currently enrolled Indiana Tech students are eligible for our services, including up to six full counseling sessions per year. Family members and significant others are eligible, when seen with the student. There is no charge for these services.
Intake, assessment and referral
The first appointment allows a student and a counselor to get to know one another and formulate a plan of action. This meeting is usually structured, as it involves the completion of initial paperwork. In some cases, the student and the counselor may agree to facilitate a referral to a community agency.
Students are able to meet one-on-one with a counselor to discuss a variety of problems including (but not limited to):
- Identity issues
- Relationship problems
- Substance abuse
Couples counseling can help couples determine and work through the influences putting stress on their relationships. While the goal is often to help couples repair their relationships, counseling can also help couples end relationships in a healthy and respectful manner.
Consultation services are offered to meet a variety of student needs, including concerns about another student who may be:
- Experiencing emotional problems
- Displaying irrational behavior or behavior out of the norm
- Exhibiting signs of substance abuse
Workshop presentations are available on a variety of topics in the areas of mental health, communication and conflict resolution. Call the Student Assistance Program to discuss the specific interest of your group or organization.
