WHP 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 WHP employees in identifying issues and planning care. EAP providers are located around the state for improved access to care.

What if I want to attend  more than three sessions?

You will be provided with three initial sessions and if needed, your provider can request additional sessions at no cost to you.  The EAP Administrator may approve additional sessions on a case-by-case basis.

How do referrals work?

You may be referred by a supervisor or by Dr. Post if he is consulted. Referrals are never mandatory, however. You may self-refer by contacting a provider directly by email or telephone to schedule an appointment. Please refer to the providers link for their contact information. You should expect a response within 24 hours.

EAP Hotline

If you need further assistance with reaching a provider or have additional non-emergency questions, contact Dr. Post’s office at 307-631-4565.  You should expect a return call within 24 hours.

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 WHP or Dr. Post.

Who administers the WHP EAP?

Licensed psychologist Jerry Post, Psy.D., of Cheyenne administers the EAP. He is the consulting psychologist to the WHP; his practice hosts the web page and manages the network of providers. He is not directly involved in providing care.

Are network providers involved in Fitness for Duty exams?

No. Network providers are not employees of Dr. Post, and they maintain the confidentiality of information about their clients per law (e.g. HIPAA) and policy. No consultation takes place between providers and Dr. Post.
