Our Mission

Welcome to Stony Brook Employee Assistance Program serving Stony Brook University, Stony Brook Medicine, and Long Island State Veterans Home. The State of New York introduced Employee Assistance Programs as a new service to its employees in 1984. The Stony Brook University local program was founded in 1985.

Our mission is to provide a voluntary, confidential and comprehensive worksite based program for the purpose of enhancing the overall well-being and productivity of faculty, staff and the organization.

The goals of EAP are:

  • To improve the health and well-being of faculty and staff.
  • To reduce the impact of personal and job related problems on the employee productivity.
  • To communicate that Stony Brook University cares about its employees.
  • To support Stony Brook University policies for maintaining a safe and respectful workplace.
  • To work closely with the EAP Advisory Committee in order to serve our employees, and maintain good relations with labor and management.

We are a voluntary program designed to offer a highly professional, confidential source of help for people with personal problems or concerns. Representatives of labor-management comprise the EAP Advisory Committee that jointly sponsors our program.

We hope you find the information on our Web site helpful. We look forward to serving the campus community.
