Help

It is a sign of strength to reach out for help when you or a loved one needs it. You are not alone. It's likely that your workplace
offers support for depression.


  • If you're in immediate crisis, contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline:
    1-800-273-TALK (1-800-273-8255).
  • Check your employee benefits program to learn more about your options, including any required processes for seeking specialty care, such as a referral.
  • Many companies offer confidential employee assistance programs (EAP) which provide free or low-cost behavioral health services.
  • Contact your benefits provider or behavioral health plan. If you are unsure of your coverage, call the toll-free number listed on your insurance card for more information.
  • Talk to your primary care physician, who may suggest that you make an appointment with a mental health professional.

The most important thing is to reach out for help
and not ignore the problem.

Be sure to follow the instructions your medical providers

give you, including making appointments for monitoring

and follow-up. If you are prescribed a medication, make

sure you take it as directed by your physician.
