A healthy emotional life doesn't affect just the way you feel; it can also positively affect your relationships with family, friends and co-workers. Likewise, emotional difficulties can make it tough to get through even the simplest daily routine, much less the rigors of your job and family life. The resources, plans and programs below are available to help you manage your mental and emotional health.

(For U.S.-payroll employees who are eligible for Chevron's health plans.)

The MHSA Plan is there to help you through the rough spots, even if you're not enrolled in a Chevron medical plan. This coverage is there for your eligible dependents, too, if they're enrolled in a medical plan to which Chevron contributes. Your MHSA benefits aren't just for serious mental health issues or addiction problems. You can get help for a variety of reasons, including: family or relationship issues or concerns; personal or emotional difficulties; major changes in life at work or at home; just feeling stressed out. You do not have to enroll in this plan. Chevron pays the monthly premiums, and you don't have to satisfy a deductible.

Employee Assistance is a confidential resource that will talk with you about your concerns and help you find an appropriate resource to address them. Reach an advisor day or night at 1-925-842-3333 (CTN 842-3333) or 1-800-860-8205. Learn More (intranet only).

Employees and family members have access to Chevron's confidential and anonymous online mental health screening tool. The tool will provide an assessment for the following conditions: depression, alcohol, eating disorders, anxiety/post-traumatic stress disorder. Take an Anonymous Screening.

LifeWorks is an online and telephone resource and referral service covering a wide variety of topics. LifeWorks can help you take care of yourself, your family and help you save time and energy in managing your everyday work and personal responsibilities. LifeWorks also has a library of books and DVDs available to you on a variety of subjects. LifeWorks resources are offered at no cost to you. However, if you receive referrals, you are responsible for evaluating and paying for the care or services you ultimately select. You can access the LifeWorks website for this resource or call them at 1-800-635-0606.

Is Stress Putting Your Heart at Risk?
Stress is one of the six most common risk factors for cardiovascular disease. In response to stress, your body automatically increases blood pressure, heart rate, respiration, metabolism, and blood flow to your muscles. This response is intended to help your body react effectively to a high-pressure situation. But when you are constantly reacting to stressful situations without making adjustments to counter the effects, the pressure can threaten your health and emotional well-being. Chevron has partnered with WebMD® to offer the Healthy Heart Program to eligible employees. By participating in this program you can understand if stress is putting your health at risk, create a plan to reduce stress, work with a health coach, and use a variety of online tools and resources that are personalized to you. To get started, take the health questionnaire.
