Employee Wellness Toolkit:

Mental Health Awareness:

Understanding Mental Health:

  • Mental well-being includes mental health, but goes far beyond treating mental illness.  Your mental health can change over time, depending on factors such as your workload, stress, and work-life balance. The first steps to getting help are often the most difficult.  Wherever you begin, Kaiser Permanente and Aetna will help get you where you need to be!

COVID-19 Toolkit:

  • The spread of the coronavirus COVID-19 has put organizations and employees on alert. This information can help keep employees informed about the coronavirus, as well as offer guidance on how to remain healthy and deal with the emotional impacts of the outbreak. Keep in mind that your GuidanceResources program is available to you and your employees 24 hours a day, seven days a week to assist with virtually any issue.
