Employee Assistance Program (EAP)
To assist WKU benefits-eligible employees and their household
members with behavioral and mental health issues, as well as worklife,
financial, and legal issues, the University offers an Employee
Assistance Program (EAP) at no cost to benefits-eligible employees.
The EAP is provided through ComPsych, a worldwide leader in
employee assistance services. The EAP is a confidential resource to
assist employees in dealing with relationship problems, stress and
depression, parenting, substance abuse, suicide prevention, teen
pregnancy, divorce, personal finance, job performance, house and
legal concerns. EAP services are fully available to each covered WKU
employee as well as immediate family members. Employees are
allowed five free counseling sessions with EAP approved providers.
Contact to the EAP and discussion with EAP counselors are completely
confidential and will not be shared with any University official or other
individual. The University encourages employees to use the EAP as a
helpful resource as needed during times of difficulty. Employees may
contact the EAP at 1-877-327-4753 24 hours a day, 7 days a week or,
with our company ID ZB3042Q at their web site
