services. The EAP is a confidential resource to assist employees in dealing

with relationship problems, stress and depression, parenting, substance

abuse, suicide prevention, teen pregnancy, divorce, personal finance, job

performance, house and legal concerns. EAP services are fully available

individual. The University encourages employees to use the EAP as a

helpful resource as needed during times of difficulty. Employees may
