Employee Assistance Program
It's Your Life. We can help you live it -- better!
The University of South Florida's Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a service program designed to assist employees with personal, family, or workplace concerns/issues. A robust EAP program is an important component of any workplace community.
It's All About Balance
We know that living a productive and fulfilling life requires a healthy mind and a healthy body. Unfortunately, managing the daily stresses of work, home and family can have a negative effect on our overall health and well-being. For many of us, life is quite simply "out of balance"; leaving us feeling overwhelmed and stressed-out. Some stress can motivate us to achieve things we never thought possible while too much stress over a long period of time can cause us to do things we normally wouldn't do. It can negatively affect personal and professional relationships, make us feel overwhelmed, lose hope and can lead to more serious issues, including depression, anxiety and substance abuse. Your EAP program can help.
A Wealth of Practical, Solution-Focused Resources
Your program has the resources and the experience to help you bring things back into balance. From online resources to confidential telephonic consultations to referrals and licensed behavioral health professionals, we're here to help you make the changes necessary to reduce stress, strengthen relationships, increase productivity and improve the overall quality of your life.
