Welcome to the Converse County Sheriff’s Office
Employee Assistance Program
The Converse County Sheriff’s Office has established an Employee Assistance Program to assist all employees. This program provides confidential access to health professionals to assist employees with any type of emotional distress. This program provides access to a network of specially selected professionals that practice in Converse County and throughout Wyoming. The Employee Assistance Program can help with everyday stressors and difficulties employees experience in and out of the workplace. These stressors can affect your life and have an impact on your well–being.
The Converse County Sheriff wants to help provide resources so that employees can quickly and conveniently get in touch with a qualified provider. These services are in complete privacy! Between July 1st through June 30th of each year, Office employees will be provided up to three sessions at no charge. If you need additional services you may use your health insurance benefits and each of the providers listed will accept our insurance.
To contact one of the qualified providers, simply select a provider and email or call them directly. You do not need a referral and this will remain strictly confidential.
Why use the EAP?
The EAP network consists of mental health counselors who stand ready to assist Converse County Sheriff’s Office employees in identifying issues and planning care. EAP providers are located throughout Wyoming. The program does not replace, but may be used in addition to, the current Converse County mental health provider.
What if I want to attend more than three sessions?
The three sessions provided by the program are meant to support planning services. The Converse County Sheriff’s Office 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 Converse County Sheriff’s Office 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 WyEAP at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like assistance in completing a referral. If you self-refer to a provider outside of Converse County, you will be responsible for your own travel and arrangements. If you are not on days off you may claim county sick days or vacation leave. If you are required to travel to an appointment by the Sheriff's office, administrative leave may be claimed.
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 Converse County Sheriff's Office or Dr. Post without your specific consent.
Who administers the Converse County Sheriff's Office EAP?
Psychologist Jerry Post, Psy.D., of Cheyenne administers the EAP. His practice hosts the web page and manages the network of providers.
