Seeking Social and Mental Health Support

At Hinge Health, we understand that everyone needs support at times. We also know that it can be difficult to find support in challenging times. This resource offers ideas for where to look for help and support.

Connect With Your Employee Assistance Program

Some employers offer an employee assistance program (EAP) with support resources. Your coach can help you connect with this resource. Some EAPs offer free sessions with a local mental health provider while others may offer a phone number for you to call when you need support.

EAPs are entirely confidential. Your employer will never be notified that you reached out. You can call and say “I’m looking for support around….” And if you’re worried about what to say, you can ask your coach to help you prepare.

Contact Your Health Insurance Provider

Call the number on the back of your health insurance card to find out what providers are in-network and what benefits you have.

Search Online

There are many online tools to help you locate local support or providers. Psychology Today has a search feature at to find local providers and can help connect you with local social services.

Hinge Health Group Support in Your App

As a part of your program, you have access to community support groups led by your expert care team. (Go to the Groups tab in your Hinge Health app.) Groups can provide a sense of belonging and the opportunity to connect with other Hinge Health members dealing with similar challenges and symptoms. 

A Hinge Health Groups member shared, “It’s reassuring to know that you are not alone. This program has helped me to know there are others who understand what I go through every day. That is what keeps me going.”
