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 email@example.com 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 in the EAP office on West Campus (192 Administration), at Stony Brook University Medical
- Center (Level 5 RM 556), or on the phone to discuss your problem or concern. 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.
- With EAP's support, you are responsible for contacting the provider to whom you've been referred and making an appointment.
- Your coordinator will ask for a follow up contact or appointment 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. Supervisor/Manager Referral.
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.
