About The Employee Assistance Program

NIH is committed to improving the health of our citizens. We are dedicated to fostering the wellness of its employees. NIH provides its workforce with a full service Employee Assistance Program (EAP), staffed by professionals with licensure and certification in workplace wellness and behavioral health. EAP is free to all employees and their immediate family members.


The EAP provides personalized consultation, short-term support, referral and follow up services to enhance personal and professional well being. EAP is an ideal first stop for access to the vast resources of NIH and the outside community. We also offer training and support for workgroups to address issues that impact the work environment. EAP services are strictly confidential.

  • Baltimore, MD

We all have a need to seek help and consultation at some point in our lives. Whether it's helping you to navigate life's transitions, find more satisfaction in your work, or maximize your physical and emotional wellbeing, the EAP is here to assist. Learn more.
