Mental Health Resources for Families
If you or a family member are in need of mental health services, there are several ways to obtain support:
1) Contact your insurance company directly for resources and coverage
2) Utilize your employer’s Employee Assistance Program (EAP)
3) Reach out to your primary care doctor for referrals and resources
4) Contact your RTSDt social worker for assistance navigating local community agencies that may accept your insurance. Several agencies are now offering Teletherapy in lieu of in person sessions.
