Everyone needs a helping hand once in a while, and the Employee Assistance Program (EAP) can provide it. 
Circumstances at home can spill over into your work life, just as difficulties on the job can affect relationships at home.  If left unattended, issues that once were minor can become more serious and have a negative impact both at home and at work. 

When times get tough, most of us can benefit from talking through our problems with someone who is a professional who will listen in confidence and help us find a good solution.  EAP consultations are available face-to-face, by telephone, or by web-video — it’s your choice. 

EAP is available for all active state employees and their eligible family members.  Laid-off employees continue to receive EAP benefits for six months after the effective layoff date. Retirees may access EAP for up to 90 days after the retirement date.

Take advantage of the wide variety of services available to you through EAP and reduce stress in your life!
