An Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is provided for AgCenter employees through contract with Business Health Services (BHS). The EAP provides employees and their immediate family members and household members with easy access to confidential assistance for personal and work-related problems that can affect their lives. There is no charge to the employee.
Issues Typically Addressed By the EAP
Daily life problems, such as relationship difficulties and financial troubles, can be resolved through the EAP. Through education and assistance, the EAP allows employees and their immediate family/household members to get early help for problems before they begin to interfere with job performance and life in general. The program provides information and assistance on problems such as:
• Drugs or alcohol addiction
• Family and marital problems
• Financial issues
• Gambling addiction
• Anger management
• Legal issues
• Dealing with grief and loss
• Job performance or work issues
• Problems with children
• Mental illness
Accessing the EAP
The EAP can be accessed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, by calling 1-888-327-7300 (toll-free). BHS case managers are licensed mental healthcare professionals who are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The case manager will ask your questions to determine the appropriate type of provider for you and then refer you to an EAP provider in your area. (Providers are located statewide.)
There are two types of access to the EAP: self-referral and supervisory referral.
SELF-REFERRAL – You contact the EAP directly. Your contact is highly confidential. The AgCenter will not receive the names of individuals who use the EAP through self-referral and you do not have to go through any AgCenter office to use the EAP by self-referral. Simply call the telephone number provided above.
SUPERVISORY-REFERRAL - A supervisory referral is coordinated through the HRM Office and may be made when an employee is demonstrating problems at work. The goal of a supervisory referral is to help the employee identify the issues causing the performance problems, devise solutions, and thereby resolve the performance problems.
Under the EAP, employees may receive free counseling from professional healthcare providers. Employees and their immediate family members and household members may each receive up to three counseling sessions per problem episode. Use of the EAP by one family/household member does not count against the other members’ three sessions. Additionally, a supervisory referral does not count against their option through self-referral. Employees often ask what happens if they still need additional assistance after their three counseling sessions. In such cases, the EAP provider will help identify the type of additional assistance needed and the employee’s medical insurance may provide coverage depending on the problem and provider. There are often social services agencies that can also be of assistance.
Questions should be directed to the AgCenter HRM Office to either Torii Freeman (225-578-4640, TFreeman@agcenter.lsu.edu), Sharon Salzer (225-578-4643, SSalzer@agcenter.lsu.edu) or Ann Coulon (225-578-6787, ACoulon@agcenter.lsu.edu).
