Mental healthcare is healthcare.
It is also self-care and caring about your team.
Provide your team with the resources they need to be whole.
If you have an Employee Assistance Program (EAP), make sure managers are trained on the access information including the phone number, brochures, website, and of course - any associated costs to the employee or their family member.
Please ensure your EAP allows all employees access, not just full timers or those who choose the company healthcare plan. Additional free or low-cost resources are listed below.

Veterans face higher cancer risks due to various military exposures. Most veterans willingly accepted this risk as a part of their sacrifice of defending their country. However, when a cancer diagnosis becomes a reality, many veterans have not thought about how to tell their child or grandchild. The Camp Lejeune Claims Center has compiled information that may be able to help.
This Helpline provides 24-hour free and confidential treatment referral and information about mental and/or substance use disorders, prevention, and recovery in English and Spanish.
