• Employee Service Program (ESP)

    Confidential  •  No Cost  •  Voluntary

    Although there is much to be hopeful for in 2021, we know many challenges and concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic persist. ESP understands  employees will continue to respond in many ways to these stressors and changes. Reactions and impact will be individualized, influenced by personal experiences, situations, and losses. Please know ESP values all employees and remains a source of support, respectful listening, and resources.

    State of Michigan employees and their eligible family members may call ESP at 1-800-521-1377 to talk confidentially with a counselor or request to schedule a video meeting with an ESP Counselor at MCSC-ESP@michigan.gov.

    All webinars are offered for State of Michigan employees through a Teams Live Event without the need for appointments or registration. Please visit the Wellness Wednesday Webinars page linked below for webinar descriptions and details.
