Welcome to the City of Rock Springs
Employee Assistance Program
The City of Rock Springs has established a special program to assist employees and their family members. This is an additional benefit that supplements your health insurance by providing confidential access to mental health professionals who have experience with and a special interest in working with public employees.
Everyday stressors, as well as some of the unique stressors and difficulties involved in public work, can affect our lives and have a real impact on our well-being. We want to help provide resources so that staff members and their families 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 mental health professionals practicing in Wyoming who have experience in assisting public employees.
Between July 1st through June 30th of each year, City of Rock Springs employees and household members will be provided with up to three hours of services each, at no cost.To access services, simply select a provider and email or call them directly. You do not need a referral from anyone else, and you may remain anonymous if you wish. If you prefer to see your provider for longer than three meetings, you may use your health insurance program to continue services.
Why use the EAP?
The EAP network consists of experienced mental health providers who stand ready to assist Rock Springs employees in identifying issues and planning care.
What if I want to attend more than three sessions?
The three sessions provided by the program are meant to support planning services. The City’s health insurance program can be employed for an indefinite number of sessions involving a modest copay.
Why doesn’t the EAP provide as many sessions as I want or need?
Your 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 the Post Associates office at email@example.com if you would like assistance in arranging a non-emergency appointment.
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.
Who administers the Rock Springs EAP?
Psychologist Jerry Post, Psy.D., of Cheyenne administers the EAP. His practice hosts the web page and manages the network of providers. He is not directly involved in providing care.
