UVI Faculty & Staff in Need Encouraged to Seek Counseling Options

After any disaster like Hurricane Maria, we are all in need of restoring our mental and behavioral balance.  It's not easy to do alone.  There are some resources to take advantage of Cigna's  Employee Assistance Program. It is free and the counselors can help you with behavioral health, alcohol and substance abuse and life's daily challenges.

Two professors who have taught psychology at UVI so they are familiar with the UVI community.  And even though they both live on St. Croix, they can meet with persons on St. Thomas.
