Emotional stress and mental health issues can affect your work performance, personal life and your physical health. Getting help early can make a difference. Confidential free counseling is available to you and your immediate family members. Ask for help early - call EAP for a consultation or to make an appointment with a licensed EAP counselor.
Relationship issues can affect your overall sense of well-being and your ability to function well at work and at home. Couple Counseling can help you and your partner understand your relationship better, improve communication or make changes in your relationship. Call EAP for a consultation or to schedule an appointment with a licensed EAP counselor.
Are you located in a city department that is too far away for you to come to the EAP office for counseling? If so, individual tele-counseling (counseling on the telephone) may be available to you. Call EAP for a consultation to determine if tele-counseling is appropriate for you.
Consultation and Referrals
If you have a problem and are not sure if counseling is right for you, call for a consultation with an EAP counselor. We will help you determine what course of action may be best for you. If we are not the right venue for the type of help you need, we will refer you to resources that can be helpful to you.
Critical Incidents and Disruptive Events
Even emotionally resilient people may experience strong reactions when exposed to a traumatic or disruptive event. EAP is here to help support you process such an event so you can return to your regular routine in your work and personal life. Call EAP for a consultation or to schedule an appointment with a licensed EAP counselor.
Are you and a co-worker having difficulty seeing eye-to-eye and getting along? Is your performance and/or personal life being affected by this discord? If both of you want your relationship to improve and are willing to work together to make that happen, ask your supervisor to contact EAP for a mediation consultation.
Workshops and Trainings
EAP offers workshops and trainings for your development. Ask your supervisor to contact EAP about a workshop or workshop series that may be right for your work unit. Topics include: Managing Stress, Effective Communication, Dealing with Difficult People, Time Management, and Non-Violent Crisis Intervention Training.
