Human Resources: Employee Assistance
EMPLOYEE ASSISTANCE PROGRAM
Think your Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is just for things like divorce, addictions or mental illness? Well think again — it also provides solutions, resources and information for everyday situations we all encounter.
Your EAP, provided by Magellan Health Services, can also provide help with the following topics:
• In-depth legal and financial consultation
• Self-assessment tools for identifying disorders with sleep, stress, depression
or alcohol use
• Health and wellness calculators
• Elder and child care assistance and providers
• Medication interaction database
• Teen and adolescent issues including anorexia, dating and college preparation
• Tips on parenting and grandparenting
• And much more!
Visit the MagellanHealth.com/member comprehensive library housing nearly 250 links to valuable information from A-Z. You’ll find information and resources for your everyday, and not so everyday, life challenges.
Remember, EAP is available to you and your family members 24/7 by telephone or online.

Travel Assistance When Away from Home
You are eligible for travel assistance services provided by AXA Assistance. You, your spouse and dependent children (whether traveling together or separately) have access to travel, medical, legal and financial assistance plus emergency medical evacuation benefits when traveling domestically or internationally 100 or more miles away from home for up to 120 consecutive days.

Is the EAP CONFIDENTIAL?
Confidentiality is of the utmost importance; the EAP complies with all state and federal confidentiality regulations. Before any information can be given to a supervisor, or anyone else, EAP clients must first indicate their desire for such a release by signing a written release form. Even with a release, information to a supervisor is limited. The utilization reports sent to Schreiner University have only blind statistics; no names are ever given.
Grief Counseling is one of the many services offered by your EAP.
