Your Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a confidential and voluntary support service that can help you take the first step toward change. Let us help you find solutions to the challenges you face at any age and stage of life to develop the life management skills needed to enjoy life more fully. You and your immediate family members (as defined in your employee benefit plan) can access immediate and confidential support in a way that is most suited to your preferences, comfort level and lifestyle.
Services with Morneau Shepell are available through the Maritz partnership with Lincoln Financial (formerly Liberty Mutual), the administrator for Maritz’ short-term and long-term disability.
There is a nationwide network of licensed and experienced counselors, including psychologists, clinical social workers, certified alcohol and drug counselors, and marriage, family, and child counselors. These counselors are located at offices near your home or work so you can easily get the help you need.
These resources are available to all regular full-time employees.
Short-term Professional Counseling provides support for personal and emotional issues. Choose the counseling delivery option that makes you most comfortable, including: telephone, chat or in-person.
Legal Support Services provide phone or in-person consultation with attorneys to answer legal questions surrounding divorce, custody, adoption, real estate, debt, bankruptcy, landlord/tenant issues, and more.
Family Support Services connects you with a Family Support Specialist for personalized assistance with family planning, parenting, childcare, eldercare, daily living support and more.
Financial Support Services provide consultation with financial professionals to answer financial questions about budgeting, debt management, tax issues, and more.
All calls and counseling sessions are confidential, except as required by law (e.g., when a person’s emotional condition is a threat, or there is suspected abuse of a minor child, and in some states, spousal or other abuse). No one, including your employer, will ever know that you have used the program unless you choose to tell them.
There is no cost to you or your family to use your Employee Assistance Plan. If referred to additional resources, those costs would be your responsibility. In some cases, your medical plan may cover some of these services.
To receive EAP services, call 1-877-695-2789 or go to the Employee Assistance website at www.workhealthlife.com/mlassist.
Providers are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
