Employee Assistance Program

Your health and well-being are important to University of Wisconsin-Superior. Your EAP benefit includes a comprehensive array of counseling and web services that can be accessed 24/7.We hope you will take full advantage of them.

All of the EAP services are completely confidential, and can be utilized by you and any member of your family,including spouse or significant other, children (regardless of age or location), and even extended family members, if their personal concern is impacting you or your work. As your employer, we will not know who uses the services, when, or for what reasons.

Counseling &Coaching Services Helping You Face Work and Life Challenges

VITAL WorkLife's free counseling and coaching services are provided by master's- and doctorate-level licensed professionals. They encourage face-to-face sessions, but also conduct counseling sessions by phone. They'll do whatever is most comfortable and convenient for you.

They can help with a wide variety of issues, including but not limited to:

  • Marital and relationship problems
  • Depression, stress and anxiety reduction
  • Drug and alcohol abuse
  • Parenting and child concerns
  • Anger
  • Grief and loss
  • Interpersonal conflict—at work or home
  • Legal and financial problems

Getting help is as easy as picking up the phone. Just call 1-800-383-1908.

When you call, one of their trained staff will take basic information from you, including your name and employer, and then will connect you with an EAP Consultant, who will talk with you and assess your needs.

Once that assessment is complete you'll be offered an appointment for a meeting with appropriate counseling staff at a time and place convenient for you. You decide whether you prefer face-to-face or telephone sessions.

If it turns out that you need help beyond the services they provide, their counselors will work with you to find appropriate resources in your community and who are part of your health plan's network, where necessary.
