Cheyenne Police Department Employee Assistance Program FAQs
Why use the EAP?
The EAP network consists of counselors who are experienced with first responders and/or trauma survivors who stand ready to assist CPD employees in identifying issues and planning care. EAP providers are located in Cheyenne and Laramie, and in other Wyoming cities.
What if I want to attend more than five sessions?
The five sessions provided by the program are meant to support planning services. The City of Cheyenne health insurance program can be employed for an indefinite number of sessions. Contact Dr. Post if you need assistance meeting deductibles or copays.
Why doesn’t the EAP provide as many sessions as I want or need?
Your City of Cheyenne 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 one of our providers directly by email or telephone to schedule an appointment. You should expect a response within 24 hours. Dr. Post’s office is glad to assist in making 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 CPD or Dr. Post without your specific consent.

What else does Dr. Post do for CPD?
