Before Stage 4: How to Use Your EAP Program to Prevent a Mental Health Crisis

We would never wait until a disease reaches “stage 4” or a crisis point to ask for help. The same should be true for our emotional health. Join the discussion with Preferred EAP Program Director Carolyn Lamparella, EdS, LPC, as she explains the stage 4 philosophy developed by Mental Health America. She’ll identify ways for employers to take full advantage of their EAP program to promote mental health and resilience in the workplace. Employees are still recovering from the fear and isolation that came with COVID-19 … so now is the time to bolster their well-being in order to prevent the progression of their mental health concerns to stage 4.

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (online)

This is the gold-standard of mindfulness training. Developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn 45 years ago at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center, this program is the foundation for all mindfulness-based programs and scientific research on mindfulness. LVHN Center for Mindfulness has offered this program for 20 years. The program takes place over eight weeks in 2 ½ hour classes and includes a half-day retreat. Participants are given support to develop their own daily mindfulness practice. Time is allocated to explore and communicate the benefits of mindfulness. A detailed manual is provided that includes background information, enrichment exercises, and resources for continued practice.
