Mental Health Program / Employee Assistance Benefit
Resident Mental Health Program
There can be enhanced benefits for Mental Health Services if you use the Resident Mental Health Program.
MCWAH is aware of the multiple demands of residency training. In an effort to meet the unique needs of our housestaff, the Mental Health Program has been designed to assist MCWAH housestaff in obtaining the highest quality of mental health care in a confidential manner. This benefit also applies to spouses and children.
Housestaff who use the Resident Mental Health Program can receive confidential referral assistance to in-network and out-of-network providers. Some referral providers offer 3 unbilled visits per academic year (7/1 - 6/30 academic year). Contact the Behavioral Health Center at (414) 955-8933 for referral assistance. For after hours (5pm - 8am) emergencies, call (414) 805-6700 and follow the instructions to reach the clinician on call.
See Resident Mental Health Services for additional information.
Employee Assistance Benefit
In addition, as part of the Long-Term Disability Insurance Plan provided to housestaff, an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is also offered. It is primarily an online referral service for such things as child care services, identity theft consultation, adoption resources, health clubs and fitness centers and other “work-life” services. It also includes financial and legal information in addition to a program for completing a simple will. Telephone consultation for referrals to support groups or community services is also provided. There is no charge for these EAP services for MCWAH housestaff or their immediate family members. Please view additional information concerning this benefit at their EAP Web site.
