The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a confidential mental health counseling service available to faculty, staff and their benefits-eligible dependents who may be experiencing personal or work place difficulties. Our services are available without a cost and counseling may address a variety of issues, including:
- Individual Marriage and Family counseling
- Relationship difficulties
- Work performance issues
- Stress management
- Substance abuse
- Workplace conflict
Appointments can be scheduled by calling (979) 845-3711, Monday – Friday, 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Employees may attend counseling sessions without using vacation or sick leave. We are located off-campus at Executive Plaza, 3608 E. 29th Street, Suite 101, Bryan, Texas. An initial assessment will be provided to determine what type of services are needed. Counseling sessions may last from 1 to 10 sessions depending on the nature of the identified issue. Based on the psychologist's assessment, a referral may be made to an outside provider at any point during the counseling process.
Our services are limited to active employees and their benefits-eligible dependents and limited to concerns that can be addressed in an outpatient, short term counseling setting. The EAP staff do not typically see young children however, an assessment session can be provided to parents and a referral can be made to the appropriate community provider. We are unable to provide formal psychometric assessment or any type of forensic/court mandated treatment or assessment.
EAP staff also regularly offer professional and personal development workshops through the Employee & Organizational Development registration system.
The Human Resources EAP office is co-hosting the 2014 Without Conscience: Psychopathy Conference in Austin on May 13–14. This conference is open to mental health professionals as well as law enforcement; parole, probation & correctional officers; forensic & clinical psychologists; prosecutors and members of the judiciary.
