All IU School of Medicine students, residents and fellows seeking mental health or personal counseling services—for any reason—can access resources for confidential personal consultation and treatment on every IU School of Medicine campus. Medical students, resident physicians and fellows are encouraged to seek professional mental health services if symptoms are interfering with medical training and/or personal or professional relationships.
All individuals are treated with respect regardless of age, color, counseling concern, ethnicity, gender, marital/parental status, national origin, race, religion, physical ability, sexual orientation or veteran status. Mental health services are confidential in accordance with state laws and ethical guidelines. Medical records are kept strictly confidential and maintained within the Department of Mental Health Services. Patient records are maintained in files separate from the student/house staff files and cannot be accessed by faculty, staff, administrators, parents or other students/house staff without the individual’s written permission.
