Addressing coronavirus concerns

Ongoing and evolving news of the coronavirus outbreak can trigger fears and concerns. While feelings of anxiety are normal, they can make day-to-day life more difficult. Uncertainty about what lies ahead and the need to adapt to new and, for some, unprecedented circumstances can deepen our worries. Cigna EAP is offering several on-demand webcasts that address the impact of these challenges. These one-hour webcasts offer strategies for managing stressful thoughts and emotions. Access these webcasts through the Cigna EAP Wellness Webcast Portal

Each month, the Cigna EAP presents "We Can Help You With That" webinars. As a BAE Systems employee, you can attend them at no cost to you. See what’s coming soon, and sign up for one or all, depending on your preference. Sign up for one or all.
