Mental Health Wellness: Tips to find treatment providers

  • Based on your preferences, there are in person or telehealth options available.
  • Check ahead of time with your insurance company, Medicare, or Medicaid to find out what types of mental health services are covered and what your benefit limits are. Ask for a list of covered providers.
  • Check to see whether your company’s employee assistance program (EAP) offers mental health services. An EAP is a work-based intervention program designed to identify and assist employees in resolving personal problems that may be adversely affecting their performance at work, such as marital, financial or emotional problems; family issues; or substance or alcohol misuse.
  • School based services are often available at school sites to meet with students who need additional attention and support. Please contact your child’s school directly to set up an appointment.
