    Confidential  •  No Cost  •  Voluntary

    As we start another new year with the challenges and uncertainty of COVID-19 still present, ESP understands the toll this can take on employees. Increasing focus on what is in our control and improving overall wellness is a great way to manage some of the related stress. ESP has counselors and resources to assist with this process and is highlighting a new resource 30 Days of Self-Care with COVID Coach.

    State of Michigan employees and their eligible family members may also call ESP at 1-800-521-1377 to talk confidentially with a counselor or request to schedule a video meeting with an ESP Counselor at MCSC-ESP@michigan.gov.
