For many working Americans, stress levels caused by various compounding events, such as COVID-19, racial injustice and the divisive political climate, are on the rise, prompting OneAmerica® and employee assistance program provider ComPsych Corporation to offer resources to help people protect their mental and physical health.

The American Psychological Association says stress among Americans is higher than the 2016 political season.* With that in mind, the free resources promote personal well-being.

“In recent polling, about two-thirds of Americans reported feeling worn out by the amount of news stemming from a highly divisive 2020 U.S. presidential election cycle,” said Steven Lynch, vice president for national sales and service, Employee Benefits. “Put those factors together with the ongoing pandemic, and you end up with a serious threat to the nation’s health. Regardless of where you live and work or how you’ve managed the social impacts of 2020, our intention is to offer no-cost resources to help people think about well-being in and outside the workplace.”

The 15-page guide offers tips for protecting mental and physical health, while remaining engaged in work and personal activities. Download the free resource here:

Self-care tips in the guide include setting “digital limits,” managing relaxation, coping with uncertainty and criticism and harnessing resilience-building techniques. It also offers an integrated approach to address issues that can negatively affect a person’s personal life and performance at work.

The stress-reduction guide is the latest resource created by ComPsych, made available through OneAmerica, that’s aimed at providing ways employees can navigate challenges resulting from current events.

ComPsych has been providing confidential counseling, legal support and financial coaching referral resources as an option for Employee Benefits (EB) customers of OneAmerica since 2016.

*More than two-thirds of U.S. adults (68%) say that the 2020 U.S. presidential election is a significant source of stress in their life, a large increase from the 2016 presidential election when 52% said the same, according to a survey conducted by The Harris Poll on behalf of the American Psychological Association.
