Overcoming Personal Challenges

The University at Buffalo recognizes that personal problems at home or interpersonal issues at work can negatively affect one’s job performance, mental health, and/or physical health. The goal of Employee Assistance is to help staff and faculty deal with these problems and issues in the most positive way possible. The entire University, including YOU, benefits from employees who are feeling good and working  productively.

Other Opportunities to Improve Your Well-Being

  • Support Groups

    Get support from your peers to improve your well-being. Designed to provide emotional, educational and social support through regularly scheduled meetings, support groups help participants develop methods and skills to solve problems. Building social support will help your ability to maintain or improve your overall personal, physical and emotional health while dealing with real life issues.

  • Training

    Attend a training to improve your well-being. Free workshops are offered to all UB employees on each of the UB campuses during the Fall and Spring semesters, and during the summer.  Workshops are led by professionals expert on the topic, and participants are typically highly satisfied with the workshops they attend.  UB employees may attend workshops during their work time, provided that they have received supervisory approval. Suggestions for training topics are always welcome.
