The realities of providing care in a crisis heavily impacted its staff.


CHRISTUS Health needed a confidential, supportive method to address associate resiliency.


CHRISTUS leaders noticed a lot of staff were not using their Employee Assistance Program (EAP) free counseling benefits.


The organization also realized its EAP was not setup to perform a high volume of outbound calls.
