Faculty Wellness Program

Our program offers assistance to faculty experiencing difficulties stemming from stress, mental health concerns, substance abuse or other personal issues.

Feinberg administration recognizes that many stressors are present in any workplace and wants to ensure that assistance is available for those in need. A crucial element to this approach is early identification of problems so that they can be resolved quickly and, in doing so, minimize their impact on one’s personal and professional life. The overarching goal of the program is to help faculty be successful in their professional lives at Northwestern University.
