All Federal agencies provide Employee Assistance Programs (EAP) for employees. Basic EAP services include free, voluntary, short-term counseling and referral for various issues affecting employee mental and emotional well-being, such as alcohol and other substance abuse, stress, grief, family problems, and psychological disorders. EAP counselors also work in a consultative role with managers and supervisors to help address employee and organizational challenges and needs. Many EAPs are active in helping organizations prevent and cope with workplace violence, trauma, and other emergency response situations.
For a point of contact for EAP information in your agency, please check your agency's intranet or internet website, or get in touch with your human resources office.
