Get the Care You Need!

Whether through the EAP or your medical insurance, help is here when you need it.

Utilize the Employee Assistance Program (EAP)

Free + confidential for all employees and their immediate family members – K College does not get information about who is using this service. Receive up to 3 counseling sessions per year, per household. Also explore online resources for work/life balance, substance abuse, dependent/elder care assistance + referral, etc.


A script to get you started

Hello – I am interested in starting therapy. I would like to use my free counseling sessions through my Unum EAP with Kalamazoo College. I am seeking therapy because…

  • I struggle with anxiety and it’s affecting my life.
  • I’ve been having negative thoughts about myself and want to talk about it.
  • I experienced a traumatic event and need help processing it.
  • My partner and I are going through a divorce and would like for our child to talk to someone.
  • I need financial counseling and I’m not sure where to start.
  • I have an aging parent and need advice.

How soon can I set up an appointment?

Utilize Your Medical Insurance

If you are enrolled in an ASR medical plan through K College:

Therapy Session | Black plan: $20 copay | Orange plan: $10 copay

Many prescription drugs used to treat mental health conditions offer generic options. The copay for generic drugs is $10 on the Black Plan and Orange Plan.

Pro Tip! Start small! If you haven’t explored mental health assistance before, start by just looking at your options and maybe come up with a script of your own for when you are ready to reach out!
