CuraLinc's New Emotional Fitness Coaching ('Text Therapy') Solution Reduces Stigma and Improves Access to Mental Health Support
CuraLinc Healthcare, a global behavioral health and wellbeing provider, today announced the launch of Emotional Fitness Coaching, a message-based therapy application that is embedded within the organization's employee assistance (EAP) and student assistance program models – and also available as a stand-alone point solution. Through a secure desktop and mobile platform, licensed counselors (also known as 'Coaches') help participants boost emotional fitness and wellbeing through an exchange of text messages, voicenotes, tip sheets, resource links and videos.
According to David Pawlowski, LCPC, CEAP, BC-TMH, CuraLinc's Vice President of Administration, "Emotional Fitness Coaching knocks down barriers within the EAP and behavioral health ecosystem for people who need support, but who may feel face-to-face or telebehavioral counseling is stigmatized, scary or out of reach."
After registering and being matched with a Coach, new users can begin messaging immediately to address stress, anxiety, grief, depression or relationship issues – or to proactively work on mindfulness, resiliency or other personal development topics.
Key features of Emotional Fitness Coaching include:
Today, more than ever, EAP and behavioral health providers must weave technology-based plan design elements into the fiber of their clinical model – or risk missing engagement and care delivery opportunities with employees who may not use the program through traditional access points. Emotional Fitness Coaching was carefully constructed with these risks in mind – to drive engagement, address care gaps and optimize support for every participant.
