Some employers require you to attend counseling if X, Y or B happens regardless of your mental state, it's more to cover off their liability than care. I prefer a layer of "peer counseling" before professional. If properly done, can be an ounce of cure instead of a pound of it and often better at sniffing out BS. Also as it's not their bread and butter they don't need to justify their existence as much. Plus the people that volunteer to do that stuff generally really do care about you.
