EAP Updates

Happy New (School) Year from EAP!
September 14, 2020

Hello from Your EAP-

A sign in front of a local business recently read, "Not all heroes wear capes, but they do wear masks."  

Even superheroes need a little help sometimes. so please remember that your EAP is here to support you as you navigate this new school year.  

We can provide short-term counseling and assessment services, referrals to community resources, wellness information, workshops and a confidential, compassionate ear when you need one.  These services are provided at no cost to you and your family members because your district recognizes the importance of supporting your overall well being, especially in these challenging times. 

If you have any questions, please give us a call or email us and we will get back to you as soon as possible. Don't forget to check out the Coping with Covid Tool Kit on our website for additional helpful resources. 

Here's wishing that all of you mask-wearing heroes in our component districts have a safe and successful school year in whatever form that turns out to be!

Michelle Stolicker, EAP Supervisor
