September is National Suicide Prevention Month, and we want to remind our employee community about the resources available for those experiencing life changes and severe challenges. It is OK to ask for help.
Your Here4TN Employee Assistance Program (EAP) offers several coping and crisis resources that you can access free of charge.
- Counseling and Therapy Resources: EAP resources can provide you with someone to talk to about your feelings, concerns and questions. Services are confidential in accordance with the law, and up to five no-cost counseling sessions are available from licensed professionals. Call Here4TN at 855-Here4TN (855-437-3486) to be connected with a confidential counseling resource.
- Sanvello Self-Care App: Sanvello is an on-demand app that offers clinical techniques to help dial down the symptoms of stress, anxiety and depression – anytime. Connect with powerful tools that are there for you right as symptoms come up. Stay engaged each day for benefits you can feel. Sanvello is compatible with iOS and Android operating systems.
Benefits eligible employees, as well as their spouse and dependents, can utilize EAP resources and services. If you are not eligible for EAP services or are seeking additional mental and behavioral health services, the following community, state and national resources are available to you.
