mySupport On-Site Clinical Care

Sometimes, managing the responsibilities of work and personal life can feel overwhelming. Worry about your own — or a loved one’s — emotional well-being, mental health, medical illness, or financial hardship can be distressing and can have an effect on your energy, focus, and productivity.

Through mySupport, JHHS employees and their household family members have 24/7 access to free, confidential counseling and referral services and five in-person counseling sessions.

When you call 443-997-7000, select option 2 and request the onsite team, you can choose to schedule  a free, confidential appointment, via telephonic, televideo or in person with a clinician from the mySupport On-Site Clinical Care Team located on various Johns Hopkins campuses.  The On-Site Clinical Care Team offers professional support, expertise and resources to help you identify and manage challenging issues in healthy ways.

The mySupport On-Site Clinical Team offers in-person appointments from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, with some appointments also available starting at 5 p.m. First-time intake appointments with an On-Site clinician typically last up to 90 minutes; subsequent follow-up appointments typically last up to 45 minutes.

Confidentiality

Confidentiality is the cornerstone of mySupport. We understand that certain issues are extremely personal, and mySupport clinicians treat all information disclosed over the phone or in a session with the utmost sensitivity. In fact, no one will know that you are receiving services from mySupport unless you disclose that information yourself or sign a release giving your clinician permission to disclose the information. It is important to note that there are a few exceptions to confidentiality (e.g., harm to yourself or others, and the abuse of children or vulnerable adults when the perpetrator has been identified). Your mySupport clinician will review confidentiality with you.

Sometimes our clients ask whether mySupport records can be accessed by a supervisor or other Johns Hopkins employees. You can rest assured that mySupport records are kept separately from all other JHHS records. Our files cannot be accessed or released without your written permission or a court order. If you have additional concerns, please feel free to raise these with your mySupport clinician.
