Research a licensed counselor
The only time a member will need to setup a log-in is:
- If the member wants to create custom legal documents from the legal center. Those documents can be saved and are confidential so the member would set themselves up with a personal/individual log in and password.
- If the member is going to take a course out of the resource center. The member would set themself up with their own log in and password. This way any courses they take can be saved and certificates printed just in case the member was referred by a supervisor and the supervisor would want documentation the member took a specific course.
The Standard has a contract with Health Advocate℠ to provide an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) that offers a range of services to employees, their spouse/domestic partner, dependent children to age 26, and household members. Services include but are not limited to, work life services, legal and financial services, and short-term solution focused counseling sessions (face-to-face or virtual). EAP is designed to assist employees facing personal or workplace challenges and to steer them toward success.
Individual EAP face-to-face or virtual counseling services are not provided to dependent children under the age of 12. Children 12 and older are eligible for family/group counseling with their parent(s) or guardian(s). If a child under the age of 12 needs counseling assistance, Health Advocate will help coordinate a referral to a counselor in the covered employee's health insurance network or a community resource.
**EAP services are meant for short-term solution focused problem resolution; when younger children need counseling, it is often not due to a short-term issue. Health Advocate's counseling network is not comprised of specialists skilled in pediatric counseling. This is the common practice for EAPs.
