Employee Assistance Program (EAP)

An employee assistance program (EAP) helps employees and sometimes family members address work and life concerns.

Why EAP?

EAPs are usually free and confidential programs designed to promote health, safety, and well-being. They often support a wide range of issues such as depression, stress, addictions, anger, parenting, relationships, and grief and loss.

Where can I find my EAP?

Many public employees have access to the Washington State Employee Assistance Program.

All other employees should start their search with their human resources or benefits department.

How do I promote my EAP?

Start by finding out what EAP your organization has access to so you can promote the service to your staff. Your EAP might even have resources to help you promote it.
