EAP (Employee Assistance Program)

EAP is a benefit provided by some employers to assist employees with personal problems, problems at home and problems at work.  Employees may contact the EAP Providers (usually a behavioral health provider) themselves or may be referred to EAP by a supervisor or manager.  The employer pays for a certain number of provider visits for each distinct episode.  Some reasons why employees might use their EAP benefit are:

  • mental illness
  • substance abuse
  • marital problems
  • family issues
  • stress
  • domestic violence
  • performance coaching
  • communication issues
  • grief management
  • worksite violence
  • cultural understanding
  • anger management
  • diversity sensitivity
  • executive coaching
  • bullying behavior
