The College subscribes to an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) that provides confidential, professional assistance to help employees and their families resolve problems that affect their personal lives or job performance. The program is strictly confidential and voluntary - it is designed to allow employees or their families to seek help on their own. We have contracted with The University of Texas Employee Assistance Programs whose staff has specialized training in helping people to identify their problems, offer guidance, and locate whatever assistance may be necessary. These problems include, but are not limited to, marital and family difficulties, adolescent problems, depression, legal concerns, financial problems and drug and alcohol related problems. Day and evening appointments are available. Appointments may be scheduled by calling 1-800-346-3549. Brochures relating to the EAP program are located in the Wellness Offices on each campus and the Human Resources Office at District.
