Mental Health Awareness Month

One in five adults in the United States face a mental health condition in any one year – that’s almost 44 million people – or 2,800 County employees. This year, people are experiencing even more stress and fear because of COVID-19 and feelings of isolation because of social distancing requirements. That means someone around you (maybe even you) right now may be struggling with their mental health. And that’s okay.

If you or someone you know is having trouble with their mental health or addiction challenges, it’s important to get help or provide support.

The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is available to support you and your family members at (888) 213-5125 or via the website. The program provides a full range of counseling and referral services. Twelve free counseling sessions are available per person, per event, per year. Sessions can be by phone, text, chat, video conference, or in person, depending on your preference. 

Wellness Works is also providing resources to help you recognize when your loved one is struggling and how you can offer support, especially during COVID-19.

December is Mindfulness Month

Mindfulness is the ability to be fully present, aware of where you are, what you’re doing, and not to react or be overwhelmed by what’s going on around you. 

It’s a helpful tool to have anytime, but particularly during the holiday season or a pandemic.
