This program provides confidential access to health professionals to assist with any type of emotional distress. 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.
Fremont County Sheriff’s Office 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! County employees will be provided with three sessions between July 1st and June 30th, at no charge. To contact one of the qualified providers, simply select on the “Find a Provider” button below and email or call them directly. You do not need a referral and this will remain strictly confidential.
Why use the Employee Assistance Program (EAP)?
EAP network consists of mental health counselors who stand ready to assist employees in identifying issues and planning care. Your well being is very important. Between July 1st and June 31st you get three sessions at no cost to you.
What if I want to attend more than three sessions?
The three sessions provided by the program are meant to support planning services. You will want to contact your personal health insurance to determine benefits for further coverage.
Why doesn’t the EAP provide as many sessions as I want or need?
The County’s 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 County or Dr. Post without your specific consent.
