Support Programs

two people talkingWe know personal challenges can affect you at work and at home, and we’re here to help.

Sometimes it’s the little things—like finding a plumber to fix that leaky sink or a doggie day care to keep your new puppy occupied. Sometimes the issues are bigger and life-challenging, like struggles with depression, drug and alcohol misuse, or financial or legal problems. Whatever your need, mySupport is free, confidential, and at your service.

Emotional Support

Through mySupport, JHU employees and their household family members have free 24/7 access to confidential counseling and referral services for help with stress at work or at home, emotional distress, a difficult life transition, or other challenges. When you call mySupport, a clinician will listen, provide support, and help you identify resources and next steps. If you choose to arrange a televideo or in-person appointment, mySupport will provide referrals to licensed clinicians in your area. Your first five in-person counseling sessions are free and won’t require use of your insurance. You and your family members also can opt for an in-person appointment with a member of mySupport’s OnSite Clinical Care Team, located on various Johns Hopkins campuses.

Daily Life Assistance

Struggling to find that balance between work and home? Let us lighten your load. Through mySupport, you and your household family members have 24/7 telephone access to a daily life assistance counselor who can offer resources and referrals for child care, elder care, pet care, parenting issues—even household help, such as finding a contractor. mySupport’s online services also can help you find services and resources for prenatal care, adoption, emergency care, summer camps, school and college search, and other needs. And mySupport also offers phone and in-person legal services; financial services, such as help with budgeting, managing debt, and tax preparation; and identity theft resolution and consultation.
