Mental Health support via text will be available through NorthStar EAP starting September 2021. Meet Tess! Texting is one of the easiest ways for us all to communicate. We are encouraged to see so many employees use EAP services, but NorthStar also wants to connect with those who do not. This text service, called Tess, will provide full-time employees and their families recommendations that align with expert information and support their mental health and wellness improvement journey. Employees are encouraged to share their cell phone number with HR or NorthStar EAP directly to enroll in this service. To contact NorthStar, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, call 906-225-3145 or visit https://northstareap.com/. Tess will reach out to enrolled staff periodically to check in and ask if you need help or would like to talk. Employees are able to opt out at any point.
