Employee Assistance Program

The New York State Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a worksite-based program designed to help state employees deal with the everyday issues involved in balancing work and life, as well as more serious problems that may impact work performance. EAP services are confidential, voluntary, and offered at no cost to employees and their families.


EAP can help with:

Relationship issues            Financial and legal concerns

Gambling                            Alcohol and substance abuse

Grief and loss                     Child care and elder care

Mental health issues          Domestic violence

Retirement                          Housing

Work-related issues           Health and wellness

Stress                                  Balancing life's demands

EAP Is Easy to Use
Find the EAP coordinator for your agency by clicking on the Coordinator List. If you prefer to contact an EAP coordinator from an agency other than your own, you may choose any EAP coordinator from the list of statewide EAP coordinators. The EAP coordinator will meet with you in person or by phone to assess your situation, provide you with referrals to community resources, and follow up with you to see how you are doing and if you need any additional assistance.
