Giving back to public school employees

Educators and support staff do so much for our children, their parents and the community. So lets give them a healthier, more balanced work life.

Caring in action

(light emotional music)


[Narrator] When you were growing up, who was your favorite teacher?


Chances are, they weren't your favorite just because they helped you learn Math or Grammar.


That's because educators do so much more than just educate.


They're our role models, our coaches, our nurses, and our biggest fans.


They're there to inspire us, to help us grow, and when we struggle, fail, or fall, they're there to help us up time and time again because they care about us.


But when their long hours and daily demands become too much and the stress of caring for the classroom switches to the pressures of raising a family, who's there to help them?


We are.


At Aetna, we understand the unique challenges school employees face everyday because we have more than a million of them as members and when they need us, we'll be there with a solution tailored to their specific needs.


Our new School Employee Guidance Program is a valuable complement to our A+ for Schools Program.


Designed to reduce turnover, lower claim costs, and increase productivity.


It provides educators with an important source of emotional support.


We're there to support a healthier, more balanced work life.


Offering help in person, on the phone, or online whenever employees need it.


For more in depth support, onsite workshops cover a wide variety of topics including ADHD, ASD, overcoming compassion fatigue, preventing burnout, and more.


Making the most of technology, we've created online tools including a member website and the myStrength app so employees can use self-support resources in the formats they're most comfortable with.


And Aetna is there in case of crisis with crisis support services to help employees recover after trauma.


Crisis consultants coordinate all services, staying connected, and even offering onsite services if needed.
