Employee Assistance Program Picture

Employee Assistance Program

The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) provides confidential counseling and referral services for all benefit eligible faculty and staff members and their dependents. Magellan Health Services includes 24-hour telephone assistance, counseling, and a helpful website to offer guidance and counseling for life issues such as:

  • Stress
  • Work issues
  • Family issues
  • Alcohol or drug dependency or abuse
  • Mental health services

All calls are free regardless of frequency. If counseling is recommended, SMU will pay for the first three visits per issue. Services beyond the three calls may be covered by your health plan depending on your medical coverage.
