Everyone needs help from time to time dealing with life's challenges. Often, it's not the unexpected event that catches us off guard. It's more likely the predictable events and transitions in our lives — things like starting a new career, marriage, the birth of a child, the challenges teenagers present, or buying a house — that find us unprepared. When you have a physical problem, you talk to your doctor. But who do you talk to when you're looking for ways to better manage your life?

When you feel like you need help dealing with a situation that's troubling you, call the Employee Assistance Program (EAP). The EAP is a confidential assessment and referral service that will link you to EAP counselors, who will help you develop the life management skills needed to enjoy life more fully. The EAP is available to you and your eligible dependents.

EAP Provides Free:

  • Easy Access To Services: Call 1-866-659-3848, 24 hours a day.
  • Face-to-face evaluation at an office convenient to your home or work.
  • Personalized care.
  • Confidentiality.
