Extra Support Service: Grief Counseling
Facing a major loss is never easy, and how you cope and grieve is very personal. No matter the circumstances, whether it’s a death, an illness, a divorce, or even a child leaving home, there are valuable resources available to you that can help.

Your RHA EAP offers you, your family members and your beneficiaries’ access to face-to-face grief counseling session (up to five (5) in-person sessions), unlimited telephonic counseling support and other related concierge services to help cope with a loss.

These services provide valuable, confidential and professional support during a difficult time to help address personal needs and/or funeral planning needs—at no extra cost! Grief Counseling Services are just a phone call away.

Call (888) 319-7819 to contact a professional counselor, or to access helpful funeral planning-related information and resources.
