The EAP program is designed to help you and your family emotionally cope with all types of issues – marital conflicts, financial problems, job stress, legal issues and more.

 

Self-Care On-Demand Webinar

Part of taking care of yourself, your mental health and managing your stress is learning how to participate in self-care. Self-care is any activity we deliberately do to take care of your mental, emotional and physical health.

Mental Health Crisis Lifeline Number

Call or text 988 if you need mental health-related crisis support or are worried about someone else. 

A new, short, easy to remember three-digit number, 9-8-8, is now the number for people across the US to call when they or someone around them is experiencing a mental health crisis. The current National Suicide Prevention Lifeline number, 800-273-TALK, will remain available and calls made by dialing 9-8-8 will be routed to the crisis line. When people call, text, or chat 988 they will immediately be put in touch with a trained counselor to help de-escalate the situation over the phone or assign a mobile crisis team to respond.
