Alcohol and substance abuse

The Employee Assistance Programs utilizes a comprehensive integrated public health approach in delivering early intervention and treatment services for persons with substance abuse issues. 

Compassion fatigue

In the course of our work, we provide a great deal of care and concern for others. When that becomes more than we can balance, we may develop problems with compassion fatigue or burnout.

Depression and anxiety

Major depression is a treatable illness that affects the way a person thinks, feels, behaves, and functions. At any point, 3-5% of people suffer from major depression and the lifetime risk is about 17%.

Financial well-being

Through on- and off-campus partnerships, we offer financial well-being programs to empower employees with the knowledge and resources needed to achieve financial stability and success.


Grief is something we all must face at some point in our lives. We can help whether grief and loss are related to circumstances at home or work.


Balancing work, life, and home can be difficult. Sometimes, talking to an objective person can be helpful. We know human relationships take care, consideration, and time to nurture.


Resilience is the process of adapting in the face of adversity or significant stress. It is a set of skills that can be developed by intentionally changing thoughts and behaviors.


Sleep is a basic necessity, as important as air, food, and water. We spend as much as one third of our lives sleeping, and yet sleep is often lost or taken for granted.

Stress management

Stress and sources of stress affect everyone at one point or another during the course of the day, from balancing work and family needs to the experience of overwhelming responsibility.
