EAP provides professional consultation services for NIH employees who are experiencing personal issues which may impair their work performance. The program offers assessment, referral, consultation, coaching, short-term counseling, and follow-up for employees confronted with family and marital issues, substance abuse, stress, depression, work-related issues and any other emotional challenges.
There is no cost to the employee for the services of the EAP. If a referral is necessary to an outside facility, the cost of covering that service is the responsibility of the employee. The EAP consultant works closely with the employee to choose a referral that is covered by health insurance or that is within the employee's financial means. To schedule an appointment, call (301) 496-3164.
