Mental Health Issues

How EAP Can Help...

Mental Health problems will affect one out of every 10 Americans at some point in his or her career. The impact of these problems in the workplace is becoming more evident and the toll it takes on families can be catastrophic. The increased awareness of the effects of depression, anxiety, trauma, and other types of mental health problems has been given national attention. EAP Coordinators deal with these issues on a regular basis and are well equipped to make appropriate referrals and/or provide literature on most types of problems.
