HR offers resources for navigating well-being during the holidays

The holidays can be a stressful time. Vanderbilt University offers a host of resources designed to help employees maintain and improve their well-being.

Behavioral health televideo counseling services

The Vanderbilt health plan provides access to trained professionals for counseling, but it’s not always easy to find the time to talk with someone. Add in the ongoing pandemic, and it can seem impossible to see someone when you need help.

Televideo services provide the chance to meet with a mental health professional on your schedule. Whatever you’re facing, you have access to the same support—psychiatrists, social workers, marriage counselors and more. A behavioral health televideo session costs the same as a face-to-face office visit.
