The call-in service for mental health is "in the moment"
support - What does that mean? How is this different than
The in-the-moment support is designed to be in response to a
particular situation or issue. Individuals can expect to be
supported through active listening, resource sharing, and
problem-solving. It can be used to talk about a
particular situation, discuss ways to deal with stress and
burnout, or even just to learn more about techniques that can
support your overall well-being. This offering differs from
typical therapy as is it not pre- scheduled appointments.
Is there a limit to how many times you can use the 24/7 mental
health support by phone?
No, there’s no limit - The 24/7 in-the-moment support is
available to use as often as you need it.
How long do the "in the moment" sessions typically last?
There is no time limit on the in-the-moment support. The length
of the sessions is dependent on the individual and their goals
What are the credentials and educational background of the
people answering the phone for mental health support?
They are master's level and/or licensed professional
How do the legal, financial, and work/life services work?
First, you will call or submit a request in the portal
describing the type of support you're looking for. (Think: What
is the goal/what would you like to walk away with?) Then, you'll
be assigned to a professional expert who will contact you within
2-3 business days.
If we call for assistance on various topics, such as financial
and legal guidance, how does that work? Is there a limit on how
many times you can use those services?
Access to professional experts is included in the Member
Assistance Program, and there is no limit to how many times you
use it! Based on your questions, you may be directed to multiple
experts that will cover different topics with you.
I noticed the login codes are different if you are located
within the United States or internationally. Why is that?
Yoga Alliance has partnered with Lytle, an AllOne Health
Company, to offer a comprehensive program to all members. Based
on your location, you'll navigate to either the domestic or the
I currently live in the US but will be traveling abroad &
eventually living abroad and back & further to the US. Can I
access both portals?
Yes! You may access either the domestic or international portal
depending on where you are currently living
How diverse is Lytle (your service partner)? It is important
for me to be able to connect with a counselor who has similar
lived experiences as I do.
All Member Assistance Program services are offered through our
partner Lytle AllOne Health Company. Their staff represents many
different backgrounds and experiences. When you call the 24/7
phone line, they encourage you to specify what you are looking
for and who you are most comfortable speaking with. They will do
their best to accommodate your request with the availability of
the counselors at that moment.
