Employee Assistance Program
The Buffalo State College Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a confidential information, assessment, and referral service. EAP is designed to help employees cope with personal issues that negatively affect their lives and may intrude upon their jobs such as emotional stress, family disintegration, financial or legal difficulties, alcoholism or drug abuse, and marital disruption. These issues not only harm an employee’s personal life, but also impair workplace productivity. EAP was formed with the knowledge that such problems can be addressed and treated with appropriate and relevant help.
Seeking Wellness Volunteers
Do you have a talent, expertise, skill, or information that you are willing to share with fellow Buffalo State community members? The Employee Assistance Program Committee is seeking volunteers willing to facilitate a workshop or session for campus faculty and staff. Just contact the EAP office with your wellness related topic and availability and we’ll do the rest! Some potential discussions include parenting, finances, child and elder care, and handling stress; possible health activities include yoga, pilates, or dance. Please email Tamara if you can donate your talents, or to let us know what types of experiences you’d like to see offered.
