For Faculty & Staff
Because EAP services are voluntary, you must initiate first contact. You can do that by connecting with the Employee Assistance Program office by phone at 631-632-6085 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org for information and to schedule an appointment. If you email the EAP for an appointment, we will call you to schedule.
How It Works
Once you contact EAP, here is what generally happens (since every situation is unique, this process will vary to meet individual needs):
- You make an appointment to meet with a coordinator either in person or over the phone. We have two EAP office locations: 1) West Campus - W0505 Melville Library, and 2) Stony Brook University Hospital – Level 5 RM 556.
- At the beginning of your appointment the EAP coordinator will review the limits of confidentiality and answer any questions that you may have.
- You will share your concerns and reasons for contacting EAP. Together you and your EAP coordinator will clarify and assess your situation and discuss resources and referral options. Your coordinator will recommend various plans of action and make appropriate referrals.
- You are responsible for contacting the provider to whom you've been referred and making an appointment.
- At your request or if indicated, the coordinator may follow up with you to find out how satisfied you are with the referral or to recommend an alternate course of action if necessary.
EAP uses an appointment-based system to ensure confidentiality, allow adequate time for a comprehensive needs assessment and provide equal access to services for all members of the University workforce and their dependents. Please make an appointment to visit with an EAP coordinator.
University supervisors and managers may refer employees to EAP; however, acceptance of a supervisory referral won't alter an employee's responsibility to improve work performance.
