At some point in our lives most of us experience personal difficulties that may need attention. Sometimes professional intervention can assist us with the challenges we face. We don’t hesitate to call a physician when our health is poor.
Yet—other problems that may pose a threat to our everyday life are often overlooked, and we choose to fight these battles alone. For these trying times, the Shands HealthCare Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is here to help you help yourself.
The EAP is designed to help employees and their families with concerns or problems that may be troubling them. The mission of the EAP is to develop and maintain a positive and productive workplace.
By providing a system of short-term, confidential, professional counseling and referral services to employees and their families, an EAP teaches employees how to manage their problems when their job is affected.
