Employee Assistance Program

Agnes Scott College has contracted with The Wellness Corporation to provide Employee Assistance Program (EAP). Employees, and their household members are eligible for this pre-paid program.

What is an EAP? The EAP provides counseling and referrals for a wide variety of personal issues. If you or a household member is faced with a personal issue, the EAP's professional, experienced, and knowledgeable counselors can help.

What Types of Resources are Available?

Personal Counseling - Counseling is available to you and your household members 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The Wellness Corporation will refer you to a counselor in your area and provide up to 3 face-to-face counseling sessions per issue, per year.

Budget and Debt Assistance - If you are faced with budget and/or debt problems, the EAP will refer you to a non-profit agency and will pay the initial fee for this service. This service helps people put together sensible budget plans and obtain advice about handling debt problems.

New Parent Transition Program - provides confidential telephonic or email counseling sessions with a Family Management Coach. The coach works with the client to craft a family/life plan that will harmonize the particular dynamics of their family and work life and ease their transition back to work.

Who Will Know That You Participated in the EAP? No one will know that you participated in the EAP unless you choose to inform him or her. The program is confidential. What you say to a counselor remains private.
