Employee Assistance Program

T

rusted by many local companies, Mental Wellness Center’s employee assistance program (EAP) is intended to help employees deal with personal problems that might adversely impact their work performance, health, and well-being. Our services include short-term counseling and referral services for employees and their household members, as well as a newsletter and onsite training .

EAP programs benefit employees as well as employers through lower medical costs, reduced turnover and absenteeism, and higher employee productivity.  Employees and their household members may use EAPs to help manage issues in their personal lives. EAP counselors typically provide assessment, support, and referrals to additional resources. Mental Wellness Center counselors work with varying issues, examples include:

  • Substance abuse
  • Emotional distress
  • Major life events, including births, accidents and deaths
  • Family/personal relationship issues
  • Work relationship issues
  • Concerns about aging parents
