Helping Employees in DeKalb County with Stress Management

The KishHealth System Employee Assistance Program understands that employees and their families need stress management tools in order to handle daily stressors. Our goal is to provide the tools to help reduce this stress or to assist the employee with alternatives for managing stress, such as short-term counseling or a referral to long-term counseling services.

  • Initial consultations, either in-person or on the phone
  • Confidential short-term problem-focused assistance for employees and/or members of the household that focuses on:
    • Stress and coping

    • Depression and anxiety
    • Grief, loss, or traumatic event
    • Marriage, family, and relationships
  • Coordination of long-term behavioral health referrals with insurance benefits
