Why You Should Use Your Employee Assistance Program - CHI Health, Nebraska (NE) - Southwest Iowa (IA)

Reasons To Use Your Employee Assistance Program


1.  Your employer provides this benefit as part of your overall employee

      benefits package to assist you and your eligible dependents.  There is

      no cost to you for our services.


2.  Our EAP counselors are Masters level, licensed counselors with years  

     of professional experience and training to assist you in finding answers

     to your problems.


3.  Unless mandated by law, all contact between you and EAP is confidential.  No information

     will be shared about you or your involvement with EAP without your written consent.

     be accessed only by EAP staff members on a need to know basis.


5.  By the end of your first visit with your EAP counselor, suggestions and / or further

     recommendations will be made.  Depending on your own unique situation, this may include

     referrals to community resources, mental health services, or a plan to continue seeing the

     EAP counselor for short-term counseling.  (Please check with your HR representative or EAP

     if you have questions regarding the number of sessions your employer allows.)
