Accessing EAP 24H Assistance
We all face problems at times, and sometimes these problems become too difficult for us to manage on our own. We may need assistance, advice, or just someone who will listen. Your Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is there to provide support when you are facing personal or work related difficulties that may be adversely affecting your life.
What does your EAP offer? Who is eligible?
The Employee Assistance Program or EAP, is a confidential counselling service offering short-term counselling (4-6 sessions) and referral services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week - at no cost to you.
This program is available to employees who are members of the McGill University benefits program, their spouse and dependent children. The services of the EAP are provided by the University as part of your Benefits program.
The McGill EAP provider, Morneau Shepell, provides you with direct access to qualified and experienced professionals from different fields (psychology, social work, eduational counselling) who are accredited by their respective professional associates.
Anyone using the program is assured of the strictest privacy. Whatever you discuss with a counsellor is kept absolutely confidential. Longpré counsellors will not release any information without your prior written consent.
If long-term or specialized counselling is required, the counsellor will assist you with a referral to another resource within the community. Consultation with this resource may involve a fee.
