More about EAP

Every individual has experienced a problem at some point in his/ her life. Fortunately, most of the time we have been able to resolve the issue on their own. There are however some problems that may be just too difficult to tackle without assistance.  It is at this time when it is valuable to know that you can count on a professional counselor to be there. 

The Ministry of Education's Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a work-site based program designed to assist employees and their families in addressing personal problems which may affect their ability to function on the job. These problems include, but are not limited to: Job-related stress, family problems, marital problems, financial Difficulties, alcohol/drug Abuse, and other behavioral issues. 

Professional assistance is offered, as a means to improve the employees' productivity, relations with their family, colleagues, employer, and the public they serve.
