Some key features of Employee Assistance Programs to fight depression:
Professional advice with approved methodologies:
Unlike other counseling services for employees, EAP has regulated and standardized methodologies that are governed by EAPA. One of these methodologies states that care must be provided by a certified professional psychologist trained to this end. The ability to listen when a person feels the need to talk about any concern in their personal or work life is one of the main characteristics. An EAP offers a series of sessions where a professional actively listens and guides. In addition, this professional follows-up and assesses each case.
Critical incident support: In the event of a crisis, accident or natural catastrophe in the organization or area, an EAP can send support personnel directly to the site to assist the teams in person, bring peace of mind and promote the development of resilience. In these cases, immediate action is essential. For this reason, some EAP Latina professionals are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Work-personal life balance: People often do not know how to handle certain legal, financial, accounting or some other specific situations. EAP experts provide guidance and resources in these areas, supporting employees with their paperwork and helping them deal with worries that affect their wellness. For example, having to review a rental contract or insurance policy or needing information about institutions to take care of a family member going through a difficult and delicate time such as old age or an addiction. Knowing the way forward and having the right community resources will help reduce the stress of not knowing how to solve a problem.
