Assistance for Mental/Emotional Needs

After a crash nearly everyone impacted can benefit from some type of mental health assistance. It may be difficult for a victim and survivor to afford these services when they are already struggling with the financial burdens that have been placed on them. Here are some resources that may help: • Mental health benefits may be available through a victim and survivor’s insurance medical coverage. Each policy is different so benefits will vary. • Sometimes employers provide assistance via an Employee Assistance Program (EAP). Typically an EAP will provide short term sessions, usually over the phone with a therapist. • Many mental health or counseling agencies provide short-term counseling on a sliding-scale or payment plan basis. • Some churches or other faith-based organizations offer counseling by leaders or trained members. • Support groups can be another place to look for assistance.
