Be Well Resources
One of the goals in JP Schools is to maintain safe and positive school environments. This page is designed to house wellness resources for JP Schools employees as they help maintain safe and positive school environments. Please note this page will be updated on an ongoing basis.
Ochsner Free Virtual Therapy Visits
The Louisiana Department of Education has partnered with Ochsner Health to launch a virtual therapy program to provide access to free mental health visits for Louisiana’s public school educators and support staff. The Department has committed $1 million to this project to ensure that we can take care of those that are taking care of our students. Educators and support staff will have access to four, completely free and 100 percent confidential, counseling sessions with licensed mental health professionals. Please feel free to review this flyer and FAQ for more information.
Public school educators and support staff interested in participating should follow these steps:
- Enroll in Ochsner Anywhere Care easily with the online form at ldoe.ochsneranywherecare.com.
- Schedule an appointment through the website or download the Ochsner Anywhere Care app from the Google or Apple app store to start from a cell phone.
- Enter Service Key “LDOE” when prompted. Use the coupon code “TEACH” when prompted.
- Review available providers and appointment times and choose the most convenient option. Appointments are available M-F through 8 p.m. with additional appointments available on Saturday.
