The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh values its employees and the unique contribution each person makes to enhance our university community. The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) reflects this commitment to employee well-being through offering an array of free and confidential services for employees experiencing personal or work related problems.
If you have questions about how EAP can be of help to you call (920) 424-2061.
EAP Can Help With Personal Issues
EAP services can help you and your family get connected with information, resources and referrals for personal problems affecting job performance and/or personal well-being. Typical problems may include:
- alcohol and drug abuse
- appetite or eating problems
- low mood
- loss of concentrations
- anger management
- catastrophic illness or loss
- marital/family discord
- relationship problems at home or on the job
The UW Oshkosh Foundation has set up a one-time, interest-free loan program to help all UW Oshkosh employees who have half-time or greater contracts (.50 FTE) manage and cope with compensation decreases resulting from approval of the state Budget Repair Bill.
EAP Can Help With Work Related Issues
EAP services can provide assistance to you and your colleagues to better deal with co-worker conflicts, job stress, concerns about job performance, improving workplace communications, or issues related to sexual harassment.
EAP services are FREE of charge. If a referral to an outside agency is needed, every effort will be made to assist you in securing services that are coordinated with your health care benefits.
How It Works
Employees can contact EAP at (920) 424-2061, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m –4:30 p.m. to schedule an appointment and/or to request a return call from an EAP counselor. The EAP office is located in the University Counseling Center, Student Success Center Suite 240 on the corner of Elmwood and Lincoln Streets.
