HigherEd Employee Assistance Program
The Department of Human Resources is pleased to introduce a supplemental Employee Assistance Program (EAP), HigherEd EAP to provide mental health services. HigherEd EAP will serve as a supplement to our existing in-house EAP, offered through the University Counseling Center.
Employees will have 24/7 access to licensed counselors for in-person, virtual, and telephonic counseling sessions.
This supplemental EAP offers confidential professional assessments, counseling services, and an extensive library of self-help resources for employees to help them address such challenges. Performance, coaching, and training resources are also available for employees in supervisor and management positions.
Participation is completely voluntary and confidential.
