Member story: Help addressing daughter’s mental health issues

Every day, Health Advocate helps people across the country improve their health, reduce their healthcare costs, meet health and wellness goals, and so much more. Here’s the story of one member, Marie, and how Health Advocate’s EAP+Work/Life program helped her handle mental health issues that were affecting her daughter and the whole family.

The problem:

Marie’s teenage daughter was experiencing sleep loss, failing grades and behavior problems as a result of multiple stressors, and communication had begun to break down with her parents.

How Health Advocate helped:

Marie called Health Advocate’s EAP+Work/Life program for help. Her EAP counselor:

  • Scheduled a family counseling session to accommodate her daughter’s school/work/athletic schedule
  • Guided the daughter with strategies to better balance responsibilities and set priorities
  • Helped the family build effective communication skills
  • Suggested simple stress management strategies
