Flexible and Comprehensive Care and Counseling
Up to a quarter of U.S. workers have been diagnosed with clinical depression. Nearly half have missed some work to deal with their condition. [SOURCE] Other research indicates that workers with depression miss twice as many days as their co-workers.

How do you offer meaningful assistance to your employees and meaningfully address behavioral health in the workplace? More importantly, how can you support your employees in finding their own work-life balance?
Employee-focused Counseling Services
CARE currently provides Employee Assistance Programs (EAPs) to a variety of businesses (including public-service agencies, municipalities, schools, and corporate entities large and small). Counseling for employees and their family members is a standard part of CARE’s Employee Assistance Program.
In contrast to many EAP providers, CARE draws on a deep well of clinical expertise with mental health, behavioral health, and substance-related struggles. We strictly abide by best-practice standards and evidence-based approaches in offering a robust set of services to promote employee wellness. Like all of our EAP offerings, CARE’s counseling services are “people first.” Most employee medical benefits programs limit participants to telephone-only counseling, exclude marital or couples counseling, or have co-pays that may make it difficult for employees to access services. CARE maintains a large affiliate network, so that your employees have the option of in-person sessions at convenient locations. We offer many couples counseling options with no co-pay. And CARE never subcontracts our after-hours crisis support line.
