Mental health is just as important as physical health when
it comes to wellness. Sometimes work conflicts, pressures from home or just
dealing with stress or anxiety can be overwhelming and difficult. Salt Lake County’s New Employee Assistance
Program is a resource to help during difficult and stressful times. The new EAP is run through Deer Oaks and is free for employees and their families.
Below are some common questions about the EAP that will help you understand
what resources are available to you and your family members.
Will my manager/supervisors know anything
about me using the EAP?
Everything involving you and the EAP is completely confidential and HIPAA protected. Your supervisors and co-workers will not know if you are using EAP services.
What is an EAP?
The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) provides mental health
services for employees and their families. The EAP offers short-term counseling
(6 sessions per issue) for a variety of issues including:
- Relationship Issues and Interpersonal Conflicts
- Depression or other mental health concerns
- Grief Counseling
- Substance Abuse
- Financial counseling
Who can use EAP services?
Any employee who is eligible for benefits (even if they're not enrolled in county benefits) and their family members (i.e. household dependents,
non-married partners, live in parents, children) can use EAP services.
What if I have an issue that requires more
than 6 sessions?
Both Regence and Select Health offer mental health
counseling coverage for employees and their families that can be long term.
Contact your insurance carrier for more information.
