Welcome to the Casper Police Department
Employee Assistance Program
Casper PD has established a program to assist Police Department employees in coping with some of the unique stressors involved in Law Enforcement work. We want to help provide resources so that Police Department staff members can quickly and conveniently, and in complete privacy, get in touch with a qualified provider who stands ready to assist with any emotional or psychological issue. The Employee Assistance Program provides access to a network of specially selected professionals with experience working with first responders and trauma veterans and who are practicing in Wyoming.
Between July 1st and June 30th of each year, Casper Police Department employees will be provided with up to three hours of services, at no cost.
To access services, simply select a provider from the group and email or phone them directly. You do not need a referral from anyone else, and you may remain anonymous. If you prefer to see your provider for longer than three meetings, you may use your health insurance program to continue services (each of our providers will accept the program). Alternatively, contact Dr. Jerry Post’s office at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance with a referral.
Why use the EAP?
The EAP network consists of mental health counselors who stand ready to assist Police Department employees in identifying issues and planning care. EAP providers are located in Casper and other Wyoming cities.
What if I want to attend more than three sessions?
The three sessions provided by the program are meant to support planning services. The Police Department health insurance program can be employed for an indefinite number of sessions if desired.
Why doesn’t the EAP provide as many sessions as I want or need?
The Police Department health insurance is your primary resource for medical and mental health care. The EAP is meant to make it easier to connect with suitable providers and to access care. It is a wellness program.
How do referrals work?
You may self-refer by contacting a provider directly by email or telephone to schedule an appointment. You should expect a response within 24 hours. Contact Dr. Post’s office at email@example.com if you would like assistance in completing a referral.
How do I know that my sessions will be private?
EAP network providers are private practitioners who enter into a client-therapist relationship with those who are referred or who self-refer. They are required by law and ethical standards to honor confidentiality, subject to legal exceptions they will describe. They cannot reveal the content of sessions to anyone without the written consent of their client. Your case will not be discussed with anyone associated with the Police Department or Dr. Post without your specific consent.
Who administers the City EAP?
Psychologist Jerry Post, Psy.D., of Cheyenne administers the EAP. His practice hosts the web page and manages the network of providers.
