Our Valued Clients

Employee Assistance Program (EAP)

We all know that at present, there is an unprecedented demand on our Mental Health system and that the State Government is working towards funding mental health pop up clinics.  There is no time frame for this, but we do know that people need mental health support NOW!

What if you, as a business owner or manager, can provide this essential mental health support NOW for your employees?

Did you know that many businesses offer financial assistance to their employees to access such a service?  It’s called an Employee Assistance Program or EAP.

Everyone experiences those times in their lives when things feel like they are getting beyond them and the Covid pandemic has exacerbated this.    The stress and pressures build up and we feel overwhelmed.  This can be for a number of reasons – significant changes to our lives like divorce, death of a loved one (including our furry friends), family problems, new job, redundancy, finances, bullying, pandemic – these can affect us all, in one way or another.

At some point in our lives, we can all benefit from speaking with someone who is trained to help us through the rough patches – a Counsellor.  They can offer strategies and techniques that can help us to take things one day at a time, and not bite off more than we can chew.

To support your employees, there is usually a nominated EAP provider that staff can call directly to make an appointment.  There is a designated number of appointments, which  will be paid for by the business.   Most importantly this service  is anonymous.  The EAP provider bills the business directly but never states the name of the person who has used the service. A crucial part of  the service is typically to offer support to all employees and their immediate families.  I If you have a teenager, a  partner or a family member  going through life challenges, then it will affect you and your work.  With the EAP supporting the family member, the business is supporting and  helping the employee too – a win/win for all parties.   Supporting  the mental health and wellbeing of employees, in turn helps increase employee engagement, attendance and productivity.

The Proven Group is proud to be partnering with MyY to offer such a vital service to our clients.
