Mental Health Program
At the 2015 State Conference in St. George, the delegates unanimously approved the FOP Mental Health Program to be administered through the Davis County FOP Foundation.
If you are struggling with PTSD or other emotional trauma or issues, you are in need of professional help. Many times, seeking that help can be troublesome for many reasons, mostly trust. If you are an FOP member in Utah, the Davis County FOP Foundation will pay for your first two visits to a participating provider as long as the Foundation has the funds to do so. In order to be a provider, they must be a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor with a history of working with cops. This is not an EAP through your work but they will take most insurance plans.
** Even though the FOP will cover your first 2 visits, an expectation of being "issue free" after just 2 visits is unrealistic. We offer this service to assist our members in getting through the door and beginning the journey to a better life and better career. Providers on our plan accept multiple insurances. Check with the provider for coverage options after your 2 visits on us. Currently, this program provides only a one time option for services. A member may not visit multiple providers under this plan.
