The Employee Assistance Program – E4 Health
E4 Health is a free, confidential benefit designed to help faculty, administrators and staff and their household or family members handle life’s challenges successfully – from routine concerns to major crises.  A broad range of services are offered in the areas of emotional well-being, family and care giving, daily living, legal and financial assistance, and health and wellness. Whether your challenge is stress management, healthy aging, parenting, relationships or substance abuse, the employee assistance program can help. If you need assistance navigating adoption resources, eldercare options, or have more complex matters that may require evaluation, crisis response, short-term counseling, and referrals, the employee assistance program is here for you.

The Helpline: 1 (800) 227-2195

Professional counselors are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to offer support and resources, simply by calling the confidential helpline. Your call will always be answered by a licensed/certified mental health professional who will assess your needs, respond competently to emergency situations, and direct you promptly to the appropriate expert area(s). To meet with a counselor in person (on campus, locally or nationwide) call the helpline to schedule an appointment.
