Assistance for You and Your Family
The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) provides voluntary, confidential, and professional assistance to help employees and their families resolve problems that affect their personal lives or performance at work. Services include problem evaluation and assessment, individual counseling, and referral to community services.
The EAP—open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week—is available through the Bowen Center at 800-342-5653.
EAP counselors are available to support benefit-eligible Purdue Fort Wayne employees and their family members. They can help with a variety of issues:
- Stress or anxiety
- Marital difficulties,
- Workplace conflict
- Alcohol or drug concerns
- Loss of spouse or loved one
- Financial or legal problems
- Relationship problems
Benefit-eligible employees and their legal dependents receive three free sessions per issue, through face-to-face counseling with a local counselor. If you require assistance beyond what the EAP provides, you may be able to continue with the same counselor, or they will assist you in selecting another counselor using your health plan benefits. Additional sessions will be subject to the applicable medical coinsurance/copay.
