Connect with Karla®

Telehealth counseling + support between sessions


Teachers are passionate. They care deeply. And sometimes it’s difficult to manage the feelings that come with that passion. It’s common to feel overwhelmed by your responsibilities. MNPS is committed to providing you with benefits that support not only your physical health but also your mental and emotional health.

MNPS has partnered with Synchronous Health to offer a unique style of support to teachers: It all happens through your smartphone (or device), so care and assistance is delivered in the moments you need it most.


The program is designed to be convenient for your schedule. You will meet with your licensed counselor or therapist face to face on your smartphone or laptop. And everything you discuss is completely confidential; no personal details are shared with MNPS. Best of all, there is no cost for employees and their adult dependents enrolled in the Certificated Employee Health Plan. (Other insurance plans are accepted.)

Note to MNPS certificated retirees: Connect with Karla is available at no cost to MNPS retirees under 65 without Medicare who are enrolled in the Certificated Retiree Health Plan and their covered adult dependents. The program may soon be available to Medicare-eligible MNPS retirees; details coming soon.
