At Middlesex Health, we know that our employees are our most valuable asset. We also know that life presents challenges—so we are here to help you and your family face them, so that you can be healthy and happy at home and at work.

Participation in the Employee Assistance Program is voluntary, free, and strictly confidential.

Below are some frequently asked questions. You can also visit the Middlesex Health Benefits website for additional information.

All employees and their immediate family members* are eligible for assistance.

*An immediate family member is defined as someone who is eligible for coverage under an employee's health insurance.

We invite you to think of EAP if...

  • you would like to speak to a counselor about a personal issue
  • you have questions or need information about a life or work issue
  • you need experienced, professional assistance about a challenging life event
  • you would like help connecting to a community program or resource

EAP can assist individual employees, employees and their partners/spouses, and employees and their families.

Help is available in many areas, including:

  • anxiety
  • depression
  • eldercare
  • generalized stress
  • grief
  • financial issues
  • legal issues
  • parenting

EAP counseling is a short-term solution to help you sort out concerns and get to the heart of a problem you are coping with. Oftentimes, a few sessions with the EAP counselor is all you need.

If you need more assistance, such as ongoing therapy or specialized services, your EAP counselor will refer you to community resources that have been screened by our team. The cost of additional treatment or resources may be covered, at least in part, by your health insurance.

No! EAP services are provided for free to employees and/or their immediate family members. 

EAP offers up to four sessions for assessment of your concerns, counseling, and/or referral to community resources.

No! EAP is entirely confidential and will not impact your employment unless there is concern for your safety or the safety of others.
