Employee Assistance Program


Sometimes life can become work and work can become your life. We are here to help you find the balance.

Employee Assistance Services (EAP)

We all have a need to seek help and consultation at some point in our lives. Whether it's helping you to navigate life's transitions, find more satisfaction in your work, or maximize your physical and emotional well-being, the EAP is here to assist. We can confidentially discuss your situation and help you find resources and information on issues including:

• Depression

• Managing stress & anxiety

• Workplace effectiveness

• Coping with grief & loss

• Family Conflict

• Anger Management

How can our EAP benefit your company?

EAPs have a valuable role in helping employees addressing issues that affect them at work, home, and in their communities. EAPs can reap benefits for agencies, employees, families, and communities by:

  • Improving productivity and employee engagement;
  • Improving employees’ and dependents’ abilities to successfully respond to challenges;
  • Developing employee and manager competencies in managing workplace stress;
  • Reducing workplace absenteeism and unplanned absences;
  • Supporting employees and managers during workforce restructuring, reduction-in-forces, or other workforce change events;
  • Reducing workplace accidents;
  • Reducing the likelihood of workplace violence or other safety risks;
  • Supporting disaster and emergency preparedness;
  • Managing the effect of disruptive incidents, such as workplace, injury, or other crises;
  • Facilitating safe, timely, and effective return-to-work for employees short-term and extended absences;
  • Reducing healthcare costs associated with stress, depression, and other mental health issues; and
  • Reducing employee turnover and related replacement costs.

How Can EAPs Be Used?

EAP services are free, voluntary, and confidential. These programs can help employees and managers address a broad and complex body of personal and workplace issues, such as:

  • Mental illness
  • Alcohol misuse
  • Substance disorder
  • Workplace conflicts, violence, and bullying
  • Emergency preparedness
  • Crisis management
