Welcome to the Platte County Sheriff’s Office
Employee Assistance Program
The Platte County Sheriff’s Office has established an Employee Assistance Program to assist benefited employees and their families. This program provides confidential access to mental health professionals to assist employees with any type of emotional distress. This program provides access to a network of specially selected professionals that practice near Platte County. 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.
PCSO 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 and June 30th of each year, PCSO employees will be provided up to three sessions each, 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 below 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 Sheriff’s Office employees in identifying issues and planning care. EAP providers are located throughout Wyoming.
What if I want to attend more than three sessions?
The three sessions provided by the program are meant to support planning services. The 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 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 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 Sheriff's Office 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.
