For a limited time!

The uncertainty of the COVID-19 environment has led to more requests than usual for mental and emotional support. 

So Synchronous Health, our behavioral telehealth partner, has created a four-week counseling program that features live, half-hour sessions through a secure, online portal. You talk confidentially with an empathetic counselor about job or financial concerns, loneliness and isolation, or the struggles of a household in close confinement. Topics addressed in this program include:

  • Making healthy connections with family and friends during social distancing

  • Setting boundaries on unhealthy relationships and behaviors

  • Learning healthy coping skills

  • Adapting lifestyle habits to current staying-in-place limits

  • Making meaning from these experiences through contribution and connection


This program is no cost to you and registration takes less than five minutes. Go to and click the COVID-19 Support Program button. Or call 615-748-0625 to sign up over the phone.

Behavioral telehealth & support by Synchronous Health

Teachers are passionate. They care deeply. And sometimes it’s difficult to separate and 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.


We have partnered with Synchronous Health to offer a unique style of support to teachers: It all happens through your phone (or other smart device), so care and assistance is delivered in the moments you need it most. The program includes access to:

  • Live licensed counselors via a telehealth app

  • A virtual assistant named Karla® who will monitor your living environment and deliver encouragement, education, and support when you need it

  • Skill-building activities and exercises


Visit to learn more and register. You’ll receive a text code to download the Karla® support app and take an initial assessment survey to prepare your journey.
