Through the Employee Assistance Program (EAP), the College provides confidential access to professional counseling services. The EAP, available to all employees and their immediate family members, offers problem assessment, short-term counseling and referral to appropriate community and private services. This service is provided on behalf of the College by an outside party.

The EAP is strictly confidential and is designed to safeguard an employee’s privacy and rights. Contacts to and information given to the EAP counselor may be released to the College only if requested by the employee in writing. There is no cost for an employee to consult with an EAP counselor. If further counseling is necessary, the EAP counselor will outline community and private services available. The counselor will also let employees know whether any costs associated with private services may be covered by their health insurance plan. Costs that are not covered are the responsibility of the employee.
