Emotional support can open up the world

As healthcare workers, you proved your resilience during the pandemic.

Now more and more of us are recognizing the need for emotional support in order to keep going and get the most out of life. Recognizing when we need help or when someone we love could benefit from mental health care is the key to finding support as soon as possible.

Watch for these signs:

  • Fatigue
  • Behavior and habit changes
  • Increased substance use/abuse
  • Drastic mood changes
  • Increased irritability
  • Isolation from friends/stopping previously enjoyed activities

Confidential support through member assistance

There are several ways for you to use your comprehensive mental health coverage to get help. With our Wellness Member Assistance Program (WMAP), you can choose in-person, group and virtual options. So if you or someone in your family needs mental health or substance abuse help, our staff of trained professionals can assist with referrals to programs and community resources, or even outpatient treatment and inpatient hospital stays. Consultations are completely confidential. You can also register for emotional health and well-being workshops. For more information, call (646) 473-6900.
