Get Support When You Need It Most

Have you ever needed help handling life’s challenges? From the excitement of getting married and having children to serious concerns like illness, relationship problems or the loss of a loved one, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed every now and then. That’s when you can turn to Penn’s Employee Assistance Program (EAP).

Available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, the EAP offers information and guidance for your personal and professional life challenges. Eligible faculty and staff have access to free, confidential counseling and referral services as well as one-on-one coaching and support. Whether you’re adopting a child, buying a home, or struggling with depression, help is right at your fingertips.

EAP services, which are provided through Penn Behavioral Health, are available to you and your eligible dependents day or night. Call (888) 321-4433 to speak with a professional counselor, or visit their website, www.pennbehavioralhealth.org/services-eap.htm, for more information. You can also contact Human Resources at (215) 898-0380 or qowl@hr.upenn.edu if you have questions about the EAP, or see www.hr.upenn.edu/Quality/Wellness/EAP.aspx for more details.
