Give the Employee Assistance Program a Chance to Help

May Mental Health month

May is Mental Health Awareness Month and the City offers a great benefit if you need someone to talk to. Raising awareness about mental health and eliminating the stigma is important. Look into Plano’s Employee Assistance Program (EAP) for answers.

Since 1949, May has been observed as Mental Health Month in the United States. Bringing attention to this issue is necessary, as research shows many people need some level of help:

  • 1-in-5 adults, 43.8 million or 18.5%, experiences a mental illness every year
  • 1-in-5 teens aged 13–18 (21.4%) experiences a severe mental health disorder at some point during their lifetime
  • Children aged 8–15, an estimated 13%, experience challenges
  • Mental health disorders affect men and women of all ages, races and social classes

You may be struggling with stress, seeking financial or legal advice, or coping with the death of a loved one. Our Employee Assistance Program provides confidential access to professional care, self-help programs, interactive tools and educational resources to ease life’s challenges. Support is available around-the-clock for these and other concerns:

  • Depression, stress and anxiety
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Financial and legal advice
  • Parenting and family problems
  • Child and elder care support
  • Domestic violence
  • Substance abuse and recovery
  • Eating disorders
  • Estate planning/will creation
  • Health and well-being
  • Education, work and career

Active employees and their family members can use the EAP even if they are not on the City’s medical plan. The program provides five free counseling sessions per occurrence and referrals for more extended care. There are several convenient ways to access the service:
