New York State Senate Mental Health Services

Welcome to Allied Wellness Collective, providing mental health counseling services for New York State Senate employees and family members.

Accessing Your Mental Health Services

No Copay for Up to Eight Counseling Sessions

As a NYS Senate employee or family member, you are eligible for employer sponsored counseling services, for up to eight sessions. If you have a NYS Senate provided insurance plan, your co-pay will be covered by your employer for the first eight sessions. If you do not have a NYS Senate provided insurance plan, your employer will cover your first eight sessions in full.

What Happens After My Eight Covered Sessions?

After your first eight sessions, you will have the option to continue services with your counselor, utilizing any insurance plan you may have available; you will be responsible for any co-pay or co-insurance for that plan; or you may choose to pay for services out of pocket, at which time the fee for services will be discussed with a member of our team.

Counseling Areas & Topics Addressed

Crisis & Traumatic Event Intervention Services

As a need for crisis intervention arises, Allied Wellness Collective will compile a crisis intervention team that consists of service providers who have expertise in the area most relevant to the incident. AWC has the ability to customize each response team to meet the needs of the incident. Further, any workforce member will have access to individual or family counseling services following a crisis incident. If you believe there is a need for Crisis & Event Intervention Services, please contact your supervisor or the Senate Office of Personnel.
