For me, the end of summer is like the “Monday” of the year. I’m less eager to get into a normal routine and it seems like a long time before I’ll get another break. I can feel the stress inching in.
What triggers your stress? Whatever those triggers are, let the Employee Assistance Program benefits you have as a Concordia Health Plan member help you manage that stress.
The EAP provides three approaches to managing or dealing with stress:
- With the Managing Stress Toolkit through the EAP, you have interactive tools to help determine your stress level and how well you deal with it. This toolkit provides stress management resources such as articles and management techniques to help alleviate your stress.
- We want you to be as healthy as possible, which is why with the EAP you receive six free face-to-face appointments with licensed clinicians who can help you with all your needs.
- Yet another great resource the EAP offers you is a 24/7 phone service that will provide you with any support and information you need at no cost. Just call 866-726-5267 at any time and a counselor will be glad to speak with you.
So if stress starts to interfere with your back-to-school, fall routine, check out the EAP tools and resources.
