First- The single most powerful thing you can do is to contract for personal, confidential, counseling for your top staff: Executives and Professionals seeking help need extra layers of confidentiality.
Think of it as concierge EAP services for the disciminating client.
One very good reason to do this is the fact that few level A and B professionals are going to go to community mental health treatment, sit in a psychiatrists or psychologist's waiting room, or dare to use the typical Employee Assistance Programs for treatment for their mental health issues or those of their family.
Also, consider this--- private, for-profit insurance companies and will keep records of visits and will demand formal diagnosis be given you that will be a part of the chart they keep on you. Many EAP's work directly with Human Resources Departments and provide aggregated utilization reports for management. For their latest trick, more and more insurance companies are even demanding copies of progress notes of sessions!!
Skip all that!
Let's talk about a plan for service that is convenient, maximally confidential, and provides an executive-savy licensed clinician as close as the nearest device and a private space.
Is the care any good? Take a look at what psychiatric and counseling experts say about me in the ABOUT ME link.
