Our Health & Well-being provisions

emlyon business school offers a range of health and well-being services with the support of a medical and social team, a helpline and psychological support service, a system to combat discrimination and gender-based and sexual violence, prevention initiatives and participative events to promote health and prevention throughout the academic year.

emlyon has developed a "well-being" offer for students under the name "Wellness Center"

The Wellness Center by APICIL

Since 2016, emlyon business school has provided a health and well-being service for students, called the APICIL Wellness Center.

The Wellness Center, supported by APICIL, was established to offer our students free, confidential, preventive healthcare, promote healthy lifestyles and provide healthcare (through medical consultations).

Available on each of our French campuses, it is staffed by a multidisciplinary team comprising several nurses, an occupational health doctor, a psychologist, a disability expert and a coordinator of prevention initiatives and well-being workshops.

A hotline for psychological support

In addition to the psychologist, available to all students either face-to-face or remotely, two helplines are provided free of charge:

  • a confidential hotline for psychological support available 24/7
  • a confidential and anonymous “Nightline” service, staffed by students.

emlyon business school employees also have access to this free and confidential online psychological support platform.

A medical & social team

Nurses are available to students from all campuses, either face-to-face or remotely, with or without an appointment. As well as providing physical and/or mental health-related information, they can also handle primary care, vaccinations or emergencies.

A general practitioner holds consultations on the Écully campus one half-day per week. This doctor is tasked with caring for and monitoring students with medical or psychological problems, previously identified by the nurses, as well as students with disabilities.

The medical-social team works closely with the disability unit, in particular to draw up special needs plans for students with disabilities.

Workshops and conferences

Actions to promote health and prevention are proposed throughout the academic year.

Resources, workshops, talks and discussion groups jointly run with health partners are organized, mainly on addiction, sexuality and disability.

Provisions to fight against discrimination and Sexual and Gender-Based Violence

The School is also strongly committed to combating discrimination and Sexual and Gender-Based Violence (SGBV). This is particularly reflected in the creation of a protocol and the online reporting platform: speakup.emlyon.com. This is available to the entire emlyon community (students, participants, employees and teaching staff). The protocol engages a network of referring contacts (Wellness Center, HR, Legal Department).
