CuraLinc's New Digital Group Support Platform Improves Access to Mental Health Care and Resources
To address this gap, CuraLinc Healthcare, a global behavioral health and wellbeing provider, embedded Virtual Support Connect (VSC) into every EAP, MAP and student support program on January 1, 2022. VSC provides moderated small-group sessions on a wide variety of topics through the program's desktop and mobile platform. "Virtual Support Connect offers employees yet another meaningful way to access care, and a unique modality that may be an ideal fit for some employees who haven't ever used the program before," says Aimee Wilczynski, LCPC, LMHC, CEAP, a CuraLinc Clinical Director and the team leader for VSC. "Group support adds a whole new dimension to the care journey, and as a clinician, I find that to be the most important part of the new platform."
Key features of Virtual Support Connect include:
In the first month since CuraLinc launched VSC, the platform provided support and guidance on a variety of topics that impact employee health and wellbeing, including Coping with Stress, Sleep Fitness, Self Care, Avoiding Addiction, Grief, Preventing Burnout and Mindfulness. According to David Pawlowski, LCPC, CEAP, CuraLinc's Senior Vice President of Operations. "Unlike other treatment modalities, group support helps people who might be struggling recognize they're not alone – something that can be therapeutic in and of itself. In addition, having the opportunity to give support, as well as receive it, can be an especially empowering experience."
