Mental Health Resources

The university recognizes that the situation with COVID-19 may be stressful for members of the Johns Hopkins community, especially those with family and friends who are affected. This page includes information on resources that can be of support in this time.

Information for employees

Through the mySupport program, 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. The program offers other referrals and daily life assistance as well.

When an individual calls mySupport, a clinician will listen, provide support, and help identify resources and next steps. If they choose to arrange a video or in-person appointment, mySupport will provide referrals to licensed clinicians in their area. The first five in-person counseling sessions are free and won’t require use of insurance.
