Staff Resources

Greetings from Stay Well! 

For the last three years, it has been a pleasure to serve your organization and constituents by providing creative, timely, and supportive emotional health resources through the Stay Well program. Stay Well started as a federal grant program established to provide behavioral and emotional support programming during the COVID-19 pandemic. During those unprecedented times, we were pleased to provide numerous webinars, tool kits, videos, and materials to Michiganders and organizations that benefit from those resources.

With the ending of the public health emergency, the Stay Well program will be discontinued effective December 31. Live programming will continue through November and December. Please share with the adults, teens, and children you serve that these final live webinars are scheduled and registration is open: see attached flyers and social media resources below. 

All the Stay Well resources, including recorded webinars and workshops, wellness videos, and downloadable teaching tools, will still be available on the MDHHS website. We hope you will use this archive to continue to offer virtual education and support to your constituents.

We also still have a supply of free Stay Well stickers, posters, and brochures. The items remaining in our inventory are listed on this formPlace orders before Dec. 31 to address needs for the coming year. Be assured that these resources will remain useful and relevant; the QR codes on some items lead to MDHHS behavioral resources, which will include the Stay Well archived resources.

Without your partnership, the Stay Well program would not have found the success it did. From all of us here at Stay Well, thank you for three years of open and honest feedback, partnership, and steadfast support! 

Peace, patience, and wellness in the coming months,

Eric VanBuskirk, LMSW

Q: When will W2s be available?

Q. I need to change my address.

A. You should make the change in eSuite and email Becky Miller so she can make sure that the correct address populates on the W2. You can also elect an electronic delivery if you have not already, so you won't have to worry about any delays from the post office.

Q. I need my W2 from last year.

A. All W2s from 2015 on are available in the eSuite program.

Q. My W2 is lost/didn't arrive in the mail or I need my W2 reprinted.

A. W2s are available in eSuite under MyHR-print W2 forms.

Q. My W2 is wrong.

A. Please email Becky Miller with details about what you feel is incorrect so she can research and get back to you.
