Finding community resources can be difficult if you're not sure where to look. To help students find and access services, the Ball State Counseling Center has compiled a comprehensive Community Resource Guide for Ball State Students. This resource guide contains useful information for dozens of local community resources for mental health care, substance use treatment, grief support, LGBTQAI+ affirming resources, family planning, financial assistance, legal services, food pantries, and much more.
