Do you ever feel like you are just trying to survive? At times, life can be challenging for everyone, and our mental health and well-being may be impacted as a result.
When we, our spouses, or our children are having a hard time, Behavioral Health benefits can act as a bridge to help move beyond feeling stressed and stuck in our emotions. These Behavioral Health resources provide support for everyday life's needs with the goal to build resiliency and to help us thrive at work, home, and school.
The City offers employees a variety of Behavioral Health benefits, including in-person, by phone, and virtually, all with the common goal of supporting the individual and family.
With $0 copay or no cost options, there is no reason to put off equipping yourself and your loved ones with resources that can help manage thoughts, feelings, experiences, behaviors, and relationships. If your preference is in-person counseling, but you are unable to get scheduled quickly, a virtual option could provide more immediate care until a face-to-face appointment is available.
All Behavioral Health benefits options are personalized and confidential.
