Your Well-Being is Our Priority

Welcome to Stony Brook Employee Assistance Program (EAP) serving Stony Brook University, Stony Brook Medicine, and Long Island State Veterans Home. EAP is a voluntary program designed to offer a highly professional, confidential source of help for people with personal challenges, including work related stress

History of EAP

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.


The Employee Assistance Program at Stony Brook University is a confidential assessment, referral and consultation service available at no cost to faculty,  staff, graduate student employees,  retirees and their dependents.  Representatives of labor-management comprise the EAP Advisory Committee that jointly sponsors our program.


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.

Our Goals

  • 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.
