With COVID, we have all experienced a difficult and unprecedented couple of years and we still have not reached normalcy. Now is a great time to ensure that you and your dependents are aware of our Employee Assistance Program. EIU and the State of Illinois offers a very robust Employee Assistance Program that can help you and your dependents manage stress experience and provide tools for improved mental health. The Employee Assistance Program services are free. ComPsych is available and can offer up to 5 counseling sessions (per event, per year) - remotely or in person - to assist with your mental health needs. More than this, ComPsych also offers a wide array of services to assist with other needs, such as: legal assistance, financial resources, work-life solutions and more.
At this time, I encourage everyone to register at www.guidanceresources.com and the ID is: stateofillinois. Explore all of the life assisting programs, webinars, and resources that ComPsych has to offer. The service is confidential, free and available for any employee and their dependents.
