Best of all it’s free and confidential for you and the people in your household. Your employer will never even know you reached out. And your loved ones will enjoy and appreciate seeing the less-stressed, better version of you each day.  

You and your household members are automatically enrolled and can use the EAP for free as soon as you become an employee of the state (most universities and benefit only entities, have their own vendor; check with your HR Office). If you need more specialized services or treatment, such as legal or financial services or treatment for substance abuse, the EAP will make referrals for additional treatment that may have an additional cost.
