Employee Assistance Program: a resource for the workforce

As the Employee Assistance Program coordinator, I assist clients with life issues that might affect their well being, and their ability to perform work duties. The EAP services include: screening/assessment, referral, individual, group and family counseling. The EAP provides professional assistance for a wide range of personal and family concerns such as stress management, relationship and family issues, depression, substance abuse and work related problems. This program is available to Civilian employees and their family members as well as military dependents, retired military, civilians and their family members.

Civilian employees: did you know that according to Army Regulation 600-85 you are required to have, on an annual basis, a minimum of two hours of Army Substance Abuse Training? Topics discussed in the training include: drugs and alcohol, stress, workplace violence, workplace bullying, etc. This training is given twice a month at the ASAP building. For more information call 380-9092. In addition, this training is also offered online at http://www.irwin.army.mil/ArmyCivilians/DHR/Pages/ASAP.aspx.

If you would like a special class for your unit, then I can make arrangements to come to your facility at your convenience, or we can schedule the training at the ASAP building. Anger and stress management classes can be done individually or in groups. I am located in building 573, which is on the corner of 3rd Avenue and South Loop Road.

The EAP services are free and confidential. Come and check us out! If you have any questions, call me at 380-9092.

Be aware of heat injury signs

Heat is the number one weather-related killer in the United States. On average, excessive heat claims more lives each year than floods, lightning, tornadoes and hurricanes combined.
