Your Well-Being

Your Well-Being benefits provide you and your household members up to six free confidential counseling sessions* —24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Your Well-Being benefits vs. Behavioral Health insurance

Your Well-Being benefits offer short-term support to get you through a challenging life event or everyday concern. This benefit is available to all Yale employees and their household family members. Enrollment in the university medical plan is not required to participate. Behavioral Health benefits are included as part of your medical health care insurance and can be accessed when you or your eligible dependents need coverage for clinical treatment, medical prescriptions, or care for specific diagnoses or for long-term support.
