Mercy Employee Assistance Program (EAP)
Mercy's Employee Assistance Program (EAP) acts as a partner, or resource, for you in providing professional, confidential help to employees and their families, through their own initiative or supervisor referral. Download a brochure or meet our staff.
Consider the Facts
- Depression affects 19 million workers annually
- 50% of all primary care visits are due to conditions related to mental or emotional problems
- 40% of industrial fatalities are related to substance abuse
- 70% of all substance abusers are employed
- Stress-related problems average $750 per working person each year
An EAP helps you establish an early identification and intervention approach in dealing with performance problems in the workplace. EAP providers work with employees, supervisors and managers to problem-solve, identify symptoms and offer guidance in managing stress – whatever the cause – in total confidentiality.
