Employee Assistance Program Banner

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Washington State Employee Assistance Program is providing increased support to the employees, supervisors, leaders and organizations we serve. EAP is in full operation across the state, offering services via phone and telehealth platforms, and we are gearing up to meet increased need. We know that the emotional and mental health toll of this crisis will be significant and we are providing additional support and resources to help address the impacts of stress, fear, financial loss, illness, grief and loss, children out of school, and isolation created by social distancing.

We have added the following new resources that specifically address COVID-19 impacts on emotional and mental health and wellbeing, including live and recorded webinars, handouts, and links to resources.
