Struggling? UHD’s Free Employee Assistance Program is ready to help

The recent death of actor Robin Williams has brought to light the fact that many people, even the famous, struggle with health and personal problems.

The overwhelming message from this tragedy is that you don’t need to suffer alone with your struggles. Help is available if you reach out and ask for assistance.

This is where UHD’s Employee Assistance Program (EAP) comes in. Available 24/7, this free program offers confidential counseling and referral to benefits eligible full and part-time employees and their dependents.

If you are dealing with depression, marital problems, grief, parenting issues, stress or many other challenges, EAP is just a call away at 713-500-3327.

Beyond the initial phone conversation, employees are authorized to receive three, no cost counseling sessions per issue each year for mental health matters, including those mentioned above. The program provides nationwide coverage and can locate a counselor near you.

In addition to mental health assistance, EAP also provides financial and legal support for such things as debt consolidation, tax questions, personal budgeting, retirement, estate planning, consumer rights, identity theft protection, bankruptcy and credit issues. They even offer a free simple will.

To access EAP and find out everything it has to offer, go to www.uteap.org.

EAP is also available for non-crisis issues involving wellness, training, work/life balance and much, much more. For EAP work/life resources, go to https://new.mylifevalues.com/ and type in “UTEAP” for both the username and password to gain access. This site provides information on family, health, time, money and EAP benefits information.

You don’t need to handle tough situations alone; give EAP a call at 713-500-3327.
