Farm Bureau realizes that it’s been a rough couple of years between overreaching regulations, severe weather during planting/harvesting season, unsteady markets, and pandemic pressures. We also recognize that the most important asset of your operation, business and home is you. It’s critical to take care of yourself in order to continuing growing all of those things and we want to be here to help. This is why we are so excited to announce your Farm Bureau has recently partnered with BetterHelp – the world’s largest therapy provider – in extending an additional layer of support to our members and their loved ones by providing access to professional counseling anytime and anywhere.
From the comfort of your home to the busy days in the tractor seat, we are providing this extra member benefit to improve the lives of our members. Through this new benefit, members will be able to receive one free month of counseling to use in 2022. If you need more than a month, you will be able to continue for 15% off your monthly BetterHelp sessions. Through this month you will be able to get unlimited access to messaging with your counselor and weekly phone/ video sessions. The BetterHelp system partners you up with a counselor who meets your needs by taking a short assessment. If your counselor isn’t the right fit for you, then you can switch counselors at any time for no cost and without any questions.
You should be receiving an email from BetterHelp inviting you to access the service, including a unique link for you to create an account.
Below are some FAQs about this new benefit. Feel free to reach out to us for further clarifications at any time. Your information will be kept confidential and safe with our team.
