Student Well-Being

Don’t settle for survival. Live your college years well.

College life can be a lot of fun, but it can also be a challenge. Late nights, hard work, unfamiliar situations, confusing choices—they all add up. It can be mentally and physically draining. At Butler, we give you access to the resources you need to make your next four years, your best four years.

We’re here to help, no matter what you need.

As you nourish your mind with new skills and ideas, remember college is also a time to form good habits around your health and wellbeing. Our goal at Butler is to give you the tools to make informed choices, as well as the resources to stay healthy. From online self-assessments to counseling and health services, we’re here to ensure you’re at your best—even when life gets crazy.

Our student Well-Being team at Butler is here to help however we can.

Be You, Be Well

Our BUBeWell program is the cornerstone of a transformative, holistic student experience. You’ll grow, learn, and become the best version of yourself.

Health Care at Butler

When you’re not feeling your best—mentally, emotionally, or physically—it’s hard to get the most out of the Butler experience. And we know that it can be hard to make time for self-care. When you’re on your own for the first time, it can even be a little unsettling. Butler University Health Services is here to provide for your medical, emotional, and educational needs so you can be back to feeling like yourself as soon as possible.

Empowered. Educated. Informed.

If you’re going to make good choices, you need good information. The staff and peer educators on the Health Promotion team offer several online and in-person opportunities to empower your quest for wellness, including free events and workshops, campus-wide campaigns about trending health topics, and fact-driven health information.

Mental Health

Butler offers students many resources to support their mental health and overall well-being. Your health and safety is our primary concern. We want to make you aware of all of the resources that are available to assist students with their mental health and not just our counseling office.
