Employee Assistance Counseling
Life & Work Connections is continuing to evaluate and adjust its delivery of services in accordance with CDC and University guidelines.
We are excited to share that copays for e-counseling through your insurance carrier are currently being waived during this period of high volume. The following mental health telemedicine options are available for University of Arizona employees:
- Aetna: Download Doctor on Demand
- Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona: Download BlueCare Anywhere or Doctor on Demand
- Cigna: Download AmWell, Doctor on Demand, or MDLive
- UnitedHealthcare: Download AmWell, Doctor on Demand, or Teladoc
Please NOTE: All dependents covered by your health plan are also eligible for telemedicine counseling services. If your carrier is not listed above, please contact your insurance company to learn your options.
If you need free, confidential emotional support due to the pandemic, please reach out to the Resilient Arizona Crisis Counseling Program.
Para apoyo emocional gratuito y confidencial en español, por favor, comuníquese con Resilient Arizona Crisis Counseling Program.
Life & Work Connections is not offering tele-counseling at this time. When one-on-one counseling services resume, we will contact current clients to offer appointments.
If you or someone you know is an immediate suicidal crisis or emergency, call 911.
Ask for a crisis intervention trained, or CIT, officer.
You can also walk in to the Crisis Response Center located at 2802 E. District St. (south of Ajo Way and Country Club); open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
One of the benefits available to eligible University of Arizona employees is up to six free counseling sessions per year, per concern. A licensed professional counselor can provide short-term counseling services, or offer outside referrals if you prefer. Short-term counseling can help you address such issues as:
Available: Monday–Friday, 8:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m.
Location: All sessions are held at our Life & Work Connections office. We validate parking in the Tyndall Garage.
Length: Sessions are 50 minutes in length (please arrive 15 minutes early before your first session).
