Chair Person – State Bar of Georgia
The well-being of our team is critical to our organization. Our partnership with CorpCare helps ensure we provide quality resources to our staff experiencing challenges that impact them personally and professionally. The ability to provide those much-needed services to our team and their family members is one way we demonstrate the value of our team and their physical, mental, and emotional needs.

Walton County has offered our staff an employee assistance program through CorpCare for many years. Employees have used the services for themselves or immediate family members with strong positive outcomes. From a management perspective the immediate response and onsite assistance made available to supervisors and employees during past crisis situations is without a doubt the strongest point that we can offer as a reference to any organization contemplating entering into a similar agreement with CorpCare. Having counselors onsite meeting with our employees to help them process situations and following up with additional onsite and private sessions so that our employees are able to continue to work providing services has been beneficial.

Since the State Bar of Georgia’s LAP is all volunteer LAP unlike many others which directly employ trained counselors, CorpCare is the lynchpin of our program. Most of us are familiar with the higher rates of everything – stress, anxiety, depression, alcoholism, other substance use issues and terribly, suicide – that we lawyers experience. By offering six prepaid counseling sessions through CorpCare, the LAP provides the proactive and external mental health support that attorneys need when self-help strategies that work well for wellness/prevention no longer are sufficient. When a Georgia lawyer reaches out to CorpCare for these services, the response is that of a well-oiled machine: a trained counselor answers the LAP hotline 365/24/7 and provides assessment and triage and generally, a referral. Every effort is made to satisfy an attorney’s request in terms of location, demographics and style of the referred counselor. Beyond the actual services provided, CorpCare lives up to its name: management plays an active role in the LAP process and all concerned care deeply about the quality of CorpCare’s service and our attorneys’ experiences with the program as well as their individual outcomes. We could not ask for more.

Why do you think an EAP is important for your membership?
The Vet Med space has, year over year, been plagued with some of the highest percentage rates of compassion fatigue, burnout, depression, and unfortunately, suicide. Just this last week, our community was rocked by the unexpected passing of 4 veterinary professionals. What the Employee Assistance Program through CorpCare offers our members, is a tool to implement in their practice that quite literally has the ability to save or transform a life. It allows practice leadership within our member practices to refer an employee that is struggling or finding themselves in a crisis, directly to a professional who has the skills to make a positive impact. The CorpCare EAP gives employees a safe place and the opportunity to find help in the areas they are struggling with.

Why did you select CorpCare as your EAP partner?
We chose to partner with CorpCare because they fully understood the uniqueness and struggles of those who have dedicated their lives and careers to Veterinary medicine. Many outside the veterinary industry are flabbergasted when they learn of the high rate of depression, compassion fatigue, and suicide within the profession. CorpCare was fully aware of these struggles and understood the urgency to offer resources to practices and their employees.

We depend on CorpCare services to help provide tools and resources that support the overall health and wellness of our team of 240 employees. We’ve used their on-site training for lunch n’ learns and health fairs, received crisis response services and requested formal referrals. We feel comfortable reaching out to our dedicated specialists as questions and situations arise. We appreciate CorpCare’s efforts in building a relationship with our team and working to meet our specific needs and requests!
