Help for Employees
While most programs offered by the Psychological Services Office are intended primarily to serve students, employees can find support through the Foothill-De Anza district's Employee Assistance Program (EAP), offered through Optum Health. Learn more about EAP below.
New Service: TimelyCare – Online Mental Health Resources
TimelyCare provides free online mental health support and other resources for De Anza students. It also offers the following resources for all college employees:
- 24/7 support for ways to assist students: Employees who are concerned about a student’s well-being can call 833-4-TIMELY any time, 24/7, to speak with a professional about ways to help. (This is an additional resource, but is not meant to replace the Early Alert or Maxient reporting systems.)
- Online webinars and self-care videos: Employees are welcome to visit the TimelyCare website at timelycare.com/FHDA and scroll down the main page to view online webinars and short videos about guided meditation, yoga. self-care and other important topics. (You may be asked to sign in with your @fhda.edu email address before viewing a video.)
While anyone can visit the TimelyCare website, the TimelyCare mobile app requires a student email account to log in. To learn about TimelyCare benefits for students, visit deanza.edu/resources/timely
