The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) provides confidential assistance to help K-State employees, like yourself, resolve problems that affect job performance. Besides being confidential, the program is voluntary - it is designed to allow you to seek help on your own.
At Kansas State University, the Employee Assistance Program is an educational and referral service designed to help faculty and staff members get in touch with personal problems and concerns affecting job performance. EAP is available to help clarify issues and identify professional resources that can help.
While it is recognized that your personal life is your own, it is also recognized that numerous personal problems often result in poor and unacceptable job performance. It is the desire of the university to help.

EAP adheres to a professional code of ethics. The use of EAP is entirely confidential. Nothing discussed will be divulged to others without your written permission except when a person's life may be in danger or the law requires disclosure.

Most agencies or individuals to whom employees are referred charge for their services, although those charges may be adjusted depending on income or ability to pay. Employee health insurance programs may provide payment or reimbursement for some of these services.
