The UMass Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a workplace-based program providing consultation, assessment, intervention, information and referral for employees and their household members. The EAP offers personal assistance to address a variety of issues, including individual, family and work-related concerns.
The EAP also provides consultation and training to managers and Human Resource staff regarding the impact and resolution of mental health and productivity problems. EAP consultation assists managers and Human Resources in minimizing the impact of stress on the workplace.
