The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a joint program of the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador and its unions.
People can experience many stresses in their lives:
Often times we can work through these types of issues on our own. But what happens when we can’t and they start impacting our health and ability to work?
EAP provides assistance to you or your immediate family member in resolving a personal problem. The services offered are professional, confidential and readily available whenever the need arises. EAP strives to make a positive contribution to the well-being and growth of each individual engaged in the service, as well as the organization as a whole.
