Can I talk to a counselor?

Personal attention is a phone call away. Whether you need emotional support for a loss or work challenge or practical guidance to find a professional resource, HealthAdvocate is a great place to start.

Your counselor will help you with immediate needs, and can refer you to another resource if you need more visits.

Will my interactions with HealthAdvocate be confidential?

Your access to the HealthAdvocate site and all discussions you have with a  counselor are strictly confidential. MaineHealth does not receive any information about individual activity.
