All of us are faced with changes; Some changes we choose and others are not voluntary. We all have various levels of stress due to these changes in our lives. At some point or another most of us could benefit from some professional assistance, support or guidance during our more difficult times.
Your employer encourages you to care for your physical, mental and spiritual health. That is why an Employee Assistance Program has been established to serve employees and their families. This program is designed to assist you in helping yourself and your family through troubling situations.
