Free 1:1 Behavioral Health Professional Sessions

As healthcare workers, we are committed to caring for others. But it’s important that we don’t forget to take care of ourselves. Recognize that feelings such as loneliness, boredom, fear of contracting disease, anxiety, worry and panic are normal reactions to stressful situation.

St. Peter’s Health team members who specialize in behavioral health are here to help and listen. In addition to our employee assistance program that connects you and your family with local counselors, you can connect with a St. Peter’s behavioral health professional for no-cost 1:1 counseling via phone. This offering is completely confidential. You can schedule a time to talk with someone by clicking here.

Employee Assistance Fund

St. Peter’s Health operates an Employee Assistance Fund (EAF) to financially assist St. Peter’s employees, volunteers and their immediate family through short term, emergency situations. The employee’s family is defined as spouse, parents, grandparents, children (biological, adopted, foster, or step), grandchildren (biological, adopted, foster, or step), siblings, mother-in-law, father-in-law, brother or sister-in-law, son or daughter-in-law.

In order to be eligible to receive EAF funds, the employee must have passed their 6 month probationary period.

This fund is generated through employees’ payroll deduction donations and varied fundraising events approved by St. Peter’s Human Resource Department and organized by the EAF Committee. The EAF Committee receives requests and determines an appropriate response. St. Peter's Health Foundation is responsible for the financial management of the EAF. Oversight of the EAF Committee activities, such as fundraising, shall be provided by St. Peter’s Human Resource Department.
