BetterHelp: Mental Health Counseling

WEMSA has a new partnership with BetterHelp, the world's largest counseling service to assist with providing mental health services to WEMSA members. This new partnership provides a 50% discount on their first month of counseling to help ease into the concept of seeking help. BetterHelp provides remote counseling services across the country, utilizing only highly educated, licensed, and trained counselors.

BetterHelp's counselors must meet rigorous standards such as having a minimum of a Masters degree in their field, have an active and verified license, and have a minimum of 3 years and 2,000 hours of experience. This ensures that WEMSA members are provided with some of the best counselors available to help.

We are excited to bring this partnership to our members and to all EMS professionals in Wisconsin. Even with all of the active efforts to remove the stigma of having mental health issues and seeking treatment, one still exists. We believe this with help with breaking down some of the barriers to receiving mental health counseling care. With a shortage of mental health professionals in many parts of Wisconsin, there are few choices for those seeking treatment and in some cases traveling to see one is just too difficult.

BetterHelp provides access to licensed counseling via messaging, chat, phone, or video sessions. It's common where people find themselves in a position where they don't want to talk over the phone, so messaging and chat is an option, still allowing for someone to be there to listen and provide help. And in the case where someone may be looking for that more face-to-face experience, video sessions are an option as well. The variety can truly help with fitting with our members schedule and their needs. Additionally, once your matched with a counselor, you can continue seeing the same counselor so you get more personalized treatment. And you can always choose to switch if needed.
