Are You An Effective Communicator?

Effective communication is when a message is delivered, received, and understood in the way it was intended.  Communication effectively combines a set of skills including appropriate body language, active listening, managing stress in the moment, the ability to communicate assertively, and the capacity to recognize and understand your own emotions and those of the person you are communicating with. Learning to use these skills can improve communication with co-workers, friends, and family.  Find out more in the Behavioral Health Partners' May Blog Post. Behavioral Health Partners is brought to you by the YOURhealth employee wellness program, providing eligible individuals with mental health services for stress, anxiety, and depression.

Behavioral Health Partners (BHP) is a mental health resource for the University of Rochester committed to improving your emotional well-being and mental health.  Our mission is to provide high quality, personalized, and accessible mental health care to eligible employees, retirees and dependents enrolled in a University Health Care Plan.

BHP services include a range of therapies for mental health concerns such as anxiety, stress, and depression. Our clinical team can provide psychotherapy, discuss the possible role of medications and prescribe as needed, or they can consult with your primary care physician about your medications. BHP clinicians tailor the length of treatment to the mental health concerns of the individual.
