Employee Assistance Program

Our mental health is connected to our physical health and our relationships. Our brains, feelings, and emotions affect our work, home, and all areas of our lives. Stress is a significant factor in many types of disease and illness. Investing in personal resiliency—through effective communication, leadership and learning at work and home—has been demonstrated to give people skills in coping with difficult situations.

Wellness and our County medical plans (Taking Care of Yourself) offer resources to invest in our mental health and creating calmness in our lives. HR-Training offers many classes on communication, leadership, and resiliency.
