Behavioral Health

Seeking behavioral health is just as essential as seeing a provider when you don’t feel well. You can utilize mental health for short-term struggles or long-term needs.

CCSD Employee Assistance Program (EAP)

Free Behavioral Health Visits (virtual or in-person)

Through the Employee Assistance Program (EAP), CCSD employees and their family/household members each have a total of 5 free visits per year, even if they are not enrolled dependents on your THT plan. The 5 available visits reset each year on January 1.

To open an EAP case, call (702) 243-4682 (available 24/7) or open a case online (select “SHO” as the insurance type). After opening your case, you can speak with a trained specialist, and get connected with a local provider that specializes in your needs. The specialist can also schedule your first appointment on your behalf.
Note: not all EAP providers are regular in-network providers. If you intend to continue care after the 5 free visits, we recommend confirming with the provider that they are in-network.

Use when: you need to speak to someone for short-term struggles
Use for: anxiety, depression, LGBTQ support, grief and loss, parenting struggles, and more.

Traditional Therapy

Note: since the EAP program covers 5 behavioral health visits per year, it is recommended that you open an EAP case before seeking care directly from an in-network provider. This will reduce your out-of-pocket costs.

Traditional office therapy visits are subject to your plan benefits. To access the online behavioral health provider directory, enter your ZIP code below and click “Find a Provider” and you will be redirected. Use the “Specialty” filter in the top left to further filter the providers listed, if necessary.
