When you call, let the clinician know you would like to speak to one of their full-time counselors over the phone. They will assist in scheduling an appointment and a ComPsych counselor will call you within 24 hours.

Contact: Call 800-859-9319 to access these services. You’ll be connected to a master’s level EAP clinician who will help refer you to counselors who meet your needs and preferences.
