King County provides mental health programs to help employees and their family cope with the personal outcomes of tragedies, stress, change, or trauma. The Making Life Easier Program (MLE) is one free resource that is available for employees to use when experiencing difficult situations.
MLE offers support with various services, such as free mental health counseling to address any issue, financial advising, credit and legal consultation, support for alcohol and drug dependency, and childcare and elderly services. Interactions are confidential and the program’s flexibility lets you request a counselor by race, ethnicity, and language, as well as change counselors as needed.
“We want to offer different support and coping methods to everyone that needs it,” Employee Assistance Program Interim Manager, Heather Steffensen said. “It’s really about meeting the needs of our people, to understand that they are unique, and not use a one-size-fits-all approach. Everyone needs something different and these MLE resources are here to help you.”
How to access Making Life Easier
Making Life Easier is available to employees and their dependents, as well as anyone who shares the employee’s address, including roommates.
MLE can be accessed by calling 1-888-874-7290 or by visiting the MLE website (password: king county), where you are able to review available services, schedule appointments, and see different activities to help you destress, like desk yoga.

Getting vaccinated has never been easier
All King County Executive branch employees must be fully vaccinated by Monday, Oct. 18, 2021, and there are many options for getting vaccinated in your community or at work. No appointment is needed at many community locations, and most pharmacies, clinics, and Public Health centers now offer drop-in COVID-19 vaccinations.
The vaccination is available regardless of insurance, citizenship, or immigration status. You will not be billed or charged for a vaccination. The COVID-19 vaccine is always free. Since obtaining the vaccination is mandatory, employees will be paid for the time spent getting the COVID-19 vaccine. This includes travel time to and from the vaccination site.

For back to school season, use “layers” of precautions to keep everyone safe
Cross-posted from Public Health Insider
Back to school often comes with feelings of nervousness and anticipation. However, families may feel even more nervous and concerned this year, because the COVID-19 Delta variant is circulating. Delta spreads more easily, so the risk of getting infected is higher.
This calls for extra attention to precautions by our schools, families who have already worked so hard to keep their children safe, and the larger community.
Find more information here on how to keep children – and our community – safe.

Security Tips: Keep devices and software current
You know that little pop-up prompting you to restart your computer for a software update? The one that only seems to come up when you’re in the middle of something important? As annoying as it may seem, this notification is actually an asset to your cybersecurity. So, before you click the “Later” option, let’s take a closer look.
What is a software update? A software update is a new and improved version of a program, application, or operating system that you already use. The update may include new features, bug fixes, or important security patches.
Why are updates important for cybersecurity? Do you ever wonder how secure the programs installed on your device are? Cybercriminals do. They look for cracks in the security of programs and use these vulnerabilities to gain access to your device. With this access, they could enable a keylogger to track what you type, steal confidential information, and even install ransomware to lock you out of your files and demand payment for access. Developers help prevent this by fixing vulnerabilities as soon as possible. These fixes are included in software updates. Meaning, the longer you wait to install the update, the longer your system is at risk.
