“I want to thank you for your help. I feel reassured to have this service available for my employees during this difficult time.

Most corporations provide member assistance benefits to their employees, but veterinarians work at smaller businesses, so the Member Assistance Program enables them to have the same access to confidential mental-health care as corporate workers. CorpCare was the most responsive to our needs.

Since the State Bar of Georgia’s LAP is all volunteer LAP unlike many others which directly employ trained counselors, CorpCare is the lynchpin of our program. Most of us are familiar with the higher rates of everything – stress, anxiety, depression, alcoholism, other substance use issues and terribly, suicide – that we lawyers experience. By offering six prepaid counseling sessions through CorpCare, the LAP provides the proactive and external mental health support that attorneys need when self-help strategies that work well for wellness/prevention no longer are sufficient. When a Georgia lawyer reaches out to CorpCare for these services, the response is that of a well-oiled machine: a trained counselor answers the LAP hotline 365/24/7 and provides assessment and triage and generally, a referral. Every effort is made to satisfy an attorney’s request in terms of location, demographics and style of the referred counselor. Beyond the actual services provided, CorpCare lives up to its name: management plays an active role in the LAP process and all concerned care deeply about the quality of CorpCare’s service and our attorneys’ experiences with the program as well as their individual outcomes. We could not ask for more.

The Vet Med space has, year over year, been plagued with some of the highest percentage rates of compassion fatigue, burnout, depression, and unfortunately, suicide. Just this last week, our community was rocked by the unexpected passing of 4 veterinary professionals. What the Employee Assistance Program through CorpCare offers our members, is a tool to implement in their practice that quite literally has the ability to save or transform a life. It allows practice leadership within our member practices to refer an employee that is struggling or finding themselves in a crisis, directly to a professional who has the skills to make a positive impact. The CorpCare EAP gives employees a safe place and the opportunity to find help in the areas they are struggling with.

CorpCare Associates is a national employee assistance program. Rather than requiring an employee to pay for their own session, CorpCare provides free counseling services. The company also makes sure that the services they provide remain confidential. According to Lisa Hardy, director of client services for CorpCare, clients are able to make use of a limited number of free sessions each year.
The company provides EAP services throughout the US and Canada. It is based in Atlanta, Georgia, but its network of EAP professionals stretches from New York to Canada. Its President, George Martin, has extensive experience conducting EAP services for a variety of corporations. He also serves on the Board of the Employee Assistance Society of North America.
Stress and other emotional issues can negatively affect the well-being of an organization. Providing employees with counseling services can help them manage the stress they are feeling and help them function better. Stress affects the entire organization, and helping your employees cope with it is essential to a business’s success. Using an EAP is an effective way to help your employees work better.
