A confidential, free resource to help identify, clarify and resolve concerns - personal, family or work related - in order to continue to be at your best at work.

The EAP is a confidential worksite based service available to all University faculty, staff and eligible family members. The Program provides professional assessment, brief counseling and/or timely referrals to community resources for multiple issues and concerns including, but not limited to:

  • Job Stress
  • Relationship Problems
  • Anxiety / Worry / Depression
  • Parenting and Family Concerns
  • Alcohol and Substance Misuse
  • Eldercare / Caregiver Stress
  • Financial/Debt Counseling
  • Communication Issues
  • Legal Questions

With 1 simple, confidential phone call you may receive a prompt in-person appointment within 2 days, or sooner if necessary, at any of our convenient locations.  If further assistance is indicated, referrals may be suggested to local resources, utilizing health insurance benefits whenever possible.

There is no cost for EAP services.  And no information regarding your identity or participation in EAP is disclosed at any time, unless required by Connecticut statutes or federal law.
